Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Doing Its Part Here

In the past, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has done big things for students. This is something the company truly believes in, and we can expect more of the same in the near future.

Late last night, this story was posted to the official Microsoft blog: Championing student innovators

Posted by Steve Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President of Developer Platform & Evangelism at Microsoft, this piece goes a long way in showing just how much the company gives back to the student community.

Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)

Here is as brief excerpt, discussing a program that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has been a part of since 2003:

“Many people know Microsoft as a world-leading global corporation. But at its heart, Microsoft is a student startup founded by a couple of passionate young innovators with an idea. Students are often vanguards for the future of technology – and with the right tools and support, they have the potential to create innovations that can redefine our lives. It’s in that spirit that Microsoft launched the Imagine Cup student technology competition in 2003.”

If you have not kept up with what the Imagine Cup is all about, you are missing out on quite a bit of fun. After 11 years, this program continues to gain steam and attention with each passing day.

Guggenheimer goes on to discuss how today’s students are different than those from the past:

“Today’s students are digital natives who easily see beyond a single technology or app to envision how software, hardware and the cloud can work together in new and inventive ways. More than a third of this year’s Worldwide Finalists are using Windows, Windows Phone and Windows Azure together across platforms and devices. Following on the heels of Build, there are even more ways that developers can use an integrated devices and services platform across Windows.”

With so much technology available to students in today’s day and age, it is important for the world’s leading companies, such as Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), to do its part in harvesting this talent and helping it grow.

The Imagine Cup often times flies under the radar, but this blog post from the company should open the eyes of many.

It is nice to see Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) doing big things for the student community all over the world. Who knows what the tech giant will come up with next.
