To become an in-house startup at Flux, the first thing you need to do is to apply. Below you’ll find the application form to fill. We will get back to you as soon as possible. The application process is constructed to ensure fair assessment. Before applying, we recommend reading through the culture and rules of Flux.

What kind of startups are you looking for?

While choosing our in-house teams, we consider the stage of the startup, the idea, the size of the team, and how well all this fits into the culture of Flux. An ideal startup is at a very early stage, technology related, and looking to use Flux from 3 to 6 months as a stepping stone to get bigger. We will tip you on where to move next! Using Microsoft tech is a requirement, and we do our best to support you from getting into BizSpark to deploying your product on Azure, and beyond.

What am I committing to?

There’s absolutely no strings attached. We are only both committing to make your startup a success, that’s it. And naturally, as you hang around here at Flux, you are expected to follow the rules.

How does the application process go?

We check for new applications regularly, but if you feel like getting a head start with immediate feedback, please email us at msftflux@microsoft.com. We want to get to know you and see how you can benefit from us. That’s why at first, your team needs to get familiar with Flux and the community. Then we can start figuring out how well we fit with each other. If both parties are down with the in-house option, we are good to go. This can take between a few weeks to a couple of months.
