Microsoft is proud to host Highway to a 100 Unicorns across several emerging startup ecosystems. The program is a series of events across several countries, aiming to discover and enable the next wave of high-potential technology startups. The program will include an online event featuring world class speakers and a competition called Emerge X to identify the top technology startups the countries we engage with.
Further, after the event we plan to deepen our engagement with the country’s startup ecosystem. The selected Emerge X startups will be onboarded for a yearlong mentorship program and will have the opportunity to earn more exciting prizes!
