Ourbit, the digital division of Ideosphere Group, has bagged the digital media mandate for Microsoft Ventures India. With this mandate win, Ourbit will be responsible for creating and fine-tuning Microsoft Ventures' online dialogue with the startup community to make their mentorship program accessible to a wider audience.

The corporate venture arm of Microsoft now aims to make this information available to as many startups as possible, through digital.

To achieve the objective, an active voice for Microsoft Ventures across social media channels will be created, making Microsoft Ventures the preferred news, information and engagement landing place for startup mentoring.
