Book your agenda and join us for the launch of the first MIC's thursDay on September the 15th!
As you probably have read in the press, the Brussels Region and Microsoft have decided to launch together a new Microsoft Innovation Center (or MIC) in Brussels with a focus on Cloud technologies. The goal of the MICs (there are about 110 in the world) is to sustain IT innovation and local IT startups projects at a regional level.
You are wondering what the new MIC Brussels can bring to you? You are an IT company, a startup or a student in IT and you are passionate about new business and technological opportunities?
We would like to invite you to join us on Thursday the 15th of September, to discover our MIC Brussels project, our 2011 activities agenda and to have the opportunity to hear about YOUR projects.
