We applied to IBM's cloud startup project and just learned that we have been accepted.
In the following it will be determined whether we will receive $1k or $10k per month for running implementation tests on Bluemix.
Today, we met with an IBM representative at a meeting about medical informatics and were intrigued by how much further support IBM provides for new startups. From networking to hands on business plan development, everything seems to be possible.
We are happy that we tried Bluemix (actually, a representative came to our office and helped us to get started), a system which is more accessible and easier to handle than others we have tried. Our employees will receive further training by IBM now and we are hopeful to implement our overdue prototype in the next weeks.
