Diginex, an impact technology company leveraging blockchain solutions to solve the world's most pressing challenges, has been selected as part of the Microsoft ScaleUp program. This exclusive 2-year program is designed for high-growth companies to leverage Microsoft’s expertise, scale their businesses and further deliver enterprise value to their clients.
Diginex joins the ranks of the world’s leading technology start ups who have met Microsoft’s vetting and selection criteria in order to participate in their ScaleUp program.
Graduates from the program will gain access to Microsoft’s internal technology expertise, software, infrastructure, dedicated support as well as an elite alumni and peer network. The program has also presented opportunities for start-ups to engage in joint sales and co-marketing efforts.
The partnership affirms our commitment to sustainability at all levels. Now, technology is helping us to relook at the big question on promoting sustainability, “What is sustainability reporting? As a blockchain financial services and technology company, Diginex wants to ensure that information on sustainability and impacts are reported correctly.
For Diginex, joining Microsoft ScaleUp will provide deep technical and business synergies between the two companies, enhancing security and efficiency to the existing platform and ultimately delivering value for clients.
Diginex has built a secure, institutional-grade tool for businesses and organizations on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform called “Diginex Trust”. The tool is designed as a blockchain enabled information provenance network that safely stores immutable records thus mitigating risks.
When it comes to protecting the environment, the focus on “What is ESG reporting?” and why sustainability reporting is important is extended to looking for strategies of promoting positive effects and mitigating the negative ones. Because blockchain is immutable, it will be easy for respective enterprises to follow their emission targets and other sustainability goals. See – what a method to try and avoid loopholes that made Kyoto Protocol fail?
Mr. Richard Byworth, commented: “We are thrilled about being a member of the Microsoft ScaleUp program and the clear vote of confidence in our technology and approach from one of the world’s largest technology companies.
We look forward to a long-lasting partnership that will create an enhanced, robust platform of tools and provide the ultimate blockchain experience for our clients.”
Ms. Annie Parker, Global Head of Microsoft for Start-ups, commented: “Less than 2% of companies that apply to our program get selected.
Diginex clearly stood out from the crowd because of its focus on institutional-grade technology and tools for enterprise customers.”
