IBM Global Entrepreneur

IBM Global Entrepreneur benefits

The PartnerWorld Global Entrepreneur Program is now closed to new applications.

The world is changing and entrepreneurs have been telling IBM what they need to be successful. And IBM listened! Last November IBM announced that we would provide up to $120,000 of IBM Cloud credits for startups, of which over 5000 + startups have taken advantage.

Reliability, lower total cost, security, flexibility and expandability are just a few of the reasons why startups are “born on the Cloud” today.  For this reason IBM will sunset the on-premise IBM PartnerWorld Global Entrepreneur offering on December 31, 2015.

We encourage you to continue your journey with IBM.  The following are areas that you may want to take advantage of.
