Leicester startup Tattel, which connects students to working professionals, has been welcomed on to a startup programme ran by tech giant Microsoft.

Tattel has been accepted on to the ‘Microsoft for Startup Founders Hub’.

It means the company will receive funding in the form of Azure Credits and support from the US firm to cover the cost of Tattel’s cloud infrastructure.

Founder Divyesh Chudasama said:

“This is HUGE! Along with this I also understand that  we will be given a mentor from Microsoft…. Tattel found a Tatteler!”

The company is currently looking for industry professionals to onboard on the app to help students in need of some career advice. If  you’re interested, visit: www.tattel.co.uk/
