The program offers approved businesses free Ninefold cloud computing and cloud storage credit worth up to $2000 per month for up to a year. It also provides support in the form of technical sales consultation as well as involving them in Ninefold's marketing campaigns.

"We've been working with the technology start-up community for eight years now and know that removing any barriers to getting a good idea off the ground is extremely welcome among our network," said Innovation Bay co-founder Phaedon Stough. "It's great to be part of the growing Ninefold community."

"Providing access and technical capability via a trusted network of subject matter experts and successful entrepreneurs helps early-stage companies succeed," said AngelCube co-founder Andrew Birt. "We're pleased to extend the Ninefold Cloud Booster Program to our start-up network. This will be a huge help in those vital first 12 months."

Innovation Bay enables entrepreneurs, business leaders and venture capitalists to network together to create tech businesses, while AngelCube offers seed capital, marketing and mentorship to start-ups.

Pollenizer and StartMate have already joined the program as its launch partners.
