MirrorWeb joins tech startups in Microsoft scaleup programme

Web archiving and monitoring solutions provider, MirrorWeb, has been selected to join the Microsoft ScaleUp programme, an exclusive initiative which grants a small number of high growth companies access to Microsoft’s sales, marketing and technical support.

By joining the programme, MirrorWeb now has the opportunity to further upgrade its platform as growth accelerates. Microsoft’s distinguished technology expertise will ensure MirrorWeb’s website and social media archiving software remains secure, efficient and continues to deliver value for its clients in keeping with industry developments.

To be successful in gaining entry onto the Microsoft ScaleUp programme, companies must be startups or growth enterprises at the forefront of emerging technologies and with the potential to tap into newer markets. Fewer than two percent of applications to the programme are currently successful.

Companies participating in the two-year programme are mentored by numerous industry experts and engage in go-to-market activities to scale their growth globally. Upon graduating, they are supported by a dedicated team of success managers, gaining access to an invaluable range of contacts as part of the Microsoft Partner and Microsoft ScaleUp Programme Alumni networks.

The Microsoft ScaleUp programme has already led to success for many of its members. One noticeable success story is Beijing-headquartered Testin, a mobile QA company that has since raised $85m in follow on funding and now services over 800,000 developers.

MirrorWeb helps digital marketing and compliance professionals meet stringent regulation requirements by capturing immutable records of their digital content and archiving their web and social media channels. Clients included Liontrust Asset Management, Zurich Insurance Group, Tesco Bank, Bank of England and the Treasury.

David Clee, CEO and Co-founder of MirrorWeb: “We are delighted to have been selected to join the Microsoft ScaleUp programme. Meeting Microsoft’s selection criteria places us amongst the world’s foremost high growth technology enterprises and affirms that our innovative platform is ready to support a vast range of clients in their digital transformation. Our unique archiving software should be an invaluable part of any regulated business’s toolkit and, as one of the world’s most influential businesses, Microsoft’s partnership will be crucial to realising this.”

Annie Parker, Global Head of Microsoft for Startups: “Given that fewer than two percent of companies applying to our programme are selected, MirrorWeb has distinguished itself from other high growth companies in the sector. We are looking forward to working closely with MirrorWeb and supporting the company on an exciting path of continued, robust growth.”
