You asked us at Microsoft to help you find new markets, identify new needs for your apps and to help you reach out to new customers. Well, we're going to do exactly that and what's more we’re going to do it in a way that helps you make the world a better place.
We're launching a new program called "Apps For Asia - Redesigning Development". The program will connect up the creative power of ISVs, startups, and software developers like yours with the economic, commercial and social applications needs of governments, NGOs, citizens, and enterprises throughout the region. We're delighted that the Asian Development Bank will be collaborating with us on this program and working with us to capture the applications needs of its 40 developing member countries.
We'll kick-off the program on 22 January 2013 at Bangsar South City and we'll add to it by including all participating ISVs, startups and software developers in a national contest for innovative applications that best address the needs of the Asian Development Bank's members' needs. In addition, to help you develop applications that attract the strongest commercial interest from the bank's membership we'll be providing technical training, development tools and 24-hour technical/architectural support.
