Microsoft for Startups brings resources together to help new business owners tackle the challenges of starting a new business.  In March of 2022, Microsoft launched the Founders Hub, a place where new business owners could find everything from advice to Azure credits for their startup journey.  Now Microsoft is making it easier for startups to find new customers, hire the right talent, and network with their peers by adding access to four LinkedIn services to the Microsoft Startups portfolio.

As of November 1, 2022, members of the Founders Hub will have access to Recruiter Lite, Sales Navigator Core, LinkedIn Premium Business, and LinkedIn ads.  Each of these new services comes ready to help you hit the ground running.

Recruiter Lite offers a free 3-month subscription to help you find the right talent for your startup, Sales Navigator Core comes with 3 months of access to people-powered research to help you target the right client for your business, and LinkedIn Premium Business offers a 3-month subscription and free InMail credits allowing startups to find business connections outside of their network. The offering is topped off with $1,000 in LinkedIn Ad credits to help drive traffic and generate leads for your startup.

“Part of growing a business is reaching the right audience at the right time, whether that’s finding a buyer or recruiting new hires with the skills needed to succeed,” said Scott Roberts, VP of Business Development at LinkedIn. “

These benefits give qualified startups access to LinkedIn services at every level to move their business forward.  You can learn more about these new benefits and the Microsoft For Startups Founders Hub here.
