- Join Microsoft's BizSpark programme http://www.microsoftstartupzone.com/
I looked at this when it launched in Nov 2008 and it didn't fit with Cobweb at the time. I hadn't realised the programme was still open to new hosting partners… for some reason I thought it was closed. I heard some good success stories with BizSpark at the Hosting Summit from real-world people on the ground, as opposed to the case study/keynote success stories.
- Join the Microsoft WebsiteSpark programme. http://www.microsoft.com/uk/websitespark/ Ditto, as above, but to attract ISV and webdev partners
- Run Wordpress on Windows Server. I think there's a need for this in our customer/partner space.
- Partner with a traditional IT support provider to move them from on-premise IT desktop support and into the cloud… Windows InTune: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsintune/windowsintune-overview.aspx for Cloud-based PC management
