How many times can I use BizSpark?


I just learned about BizSpark and found it quite perfect for bringing my ideas to life as startups.

I have 3-4 ideas, but I want to start with 1 at a time. Suppose I work on an idea for 1 year and either everything goes well or it fails. Can I then just start from scratch on my 2nd idea, and get another 3 years on BizSpark? Or do I work on all my ideas at once (but it will divert my focus, so I'd like to avoid it)?

  • This is probably a question for Microsoft, no? I checked the partner guide but didn't see this topic covered. – Scott Wilson 6 years ago
  • I started two different companies. Each is in Bizspark. There was a problem getting the Bizspark for the second company but on asking for clarification MS realized their mistake and approved the company. – Tim J 6 years ago

One company can work on multiple ideas, and that all at once, or in groups, or sequentially as the management thinks best.

A company can join BizSpark once. And then stay in the program for either 3 years or until a revenue of ½ / 1 million dollars per year is reached.

Keep in mind that not all types of business / business ideas qualify for BizSpark.
