Malvern-based drone company DronePrep has been accepted onto the Microsoft for Startups Programme, securing $25,000 (almost £18,000),

Microsoft for Startups is a global program helping startups scale up their companies by providing access to powerful technology including Azure and GitHub Enterprise (yes it really is called that ...) coupled with a streamlined path to selling alongside Microsoft and its global partner ecosystem.

The recently launched, new DronePrep platform has been built using Microsoft technologies and the company said it couldn’t be more excited to be working with Microsoft for Startups to enhance, grow and scale its software.

DronePrep secured the sponsorship following an introduction arranged by Worcestershire technology accelerator BetaDen as it came towards the end of its time on the programme. BetaDen, which is based at Malvern Hills Science Park, provides early-stage technology businesses with a nine-month programme of support worth around £50,000, including 30 hours access to Worcestershire’s 5G testbed, guidance from an industry partner with established supply chain networks, a £10,000 proof of concept grant, mentoring from BetaDen’s handpicked team of commercial and technology experts and office space.

Claire added: “BetaDen has played a huge part in our journey and preparing us for the next stage of our development and we can’t wait to share the next stage of our journey with our fellow cohort members, investors and current and potential customers.”
