Adam Nanjee: Canadian Startup Veteran Joins Microsoft for Startups Team @adamnanjee

Adam NanjeeI am honored, humbled, and thrilled to share that I have joined Microsoft for Startups as Managing Director for Canada, where I will be working with Canada’s best and brightest entrepreneurs and founders, innovation hubs, and accelerators to enable and ultimately scale startups in Canada leveraging the best-in-class platforms from Microsoft.

Back in 2014, having launched Canada’s first national startup vertical in financial technology at MaRS Discovery District (one of Canada’s largest innovation hubs), and working closely with startups, venture capital firms and corporates across the country we came to a quick conclusion – for startups in Canada to achieve international growth they would need a global, dedicated, and forward-thinking technology partner. Fast-forward to late 2018 when I heard that Microsoft had invested $500M into a new global organization dedicated to startups dubbed ‘Microsoft for Startups’. The program aims to help startups with sales, marketing and tech support, I immediately knew that there was a significant opportunity in Canada for the startup community to be a part of this vision.
