Microsoft launches ‘Build with AI’ program to ease use of AI for startup founders

Microsoft has announced new tools to help make building AI solutions easier. With Build with AI, held within the Microsoft for Startups Founders Hub, founders gain access to flexible templates designed to accelerate the creation and deployment of AI solutions.

The new templates allow founders to quickly create and launch AI solutions by allowing them to add ChatGPT to an app, connect ChatGPT to an app’s data using Python or JavaScript, or even create a ChatGPT plugin. When clicking on these templates, they open in their development tool of choice and give everything needed to understand, edit, and deploy them, including tips for customizing and troubleshooting.

The update also includes an AI assistant in Founders Hub to provide support at every stage of the startup journey. Once in Founders Hub, founders can access an AI-powered assistant via a button on the top navigation bar or through shortcuts on the homepage. The dedicated AI assistant is now available to support users and answer their questions within the Founders Hub platform.

Once engaged, the assistant opens a chat window with recommended questions or prompts for users to ask their own. With these tools, founders can make their work more efficient, giving them more time to focus on the things that matter like growing their business.

The Founders Hub is an initiative under the Microsoft for Startups program which is aimed at supporting founders through experimentation and development of solutions. The program accelerates startup growth with free access to generative AI models, up to $150,000 in Azure credits to be used towards Azure AI, and expert guidance. Founders, even those with just an idea, can sign up for the Founders Hub and get the tech, tools and resources they need to prototype, build and ship their solution.
