European cloud services provider Scaleway, which has a presence in over 160 countries, is cementing its role as a global player with the UK launch of its Startup Program – a year-long scheme which makes up to £30,000 worth of cloud services and tools available to participants, as well as training and mentoring.
The company’s move to the UK comes in response to rising demand for its industry-specific products, and its desire to strengthen the relationship with its existing UK customer base of over 1,500 companies and developers. Scaleway’s customers often request services that are closer to their end-users, which is why the company has also focused on expansion opportunities in other regions of Europe, including the Netherlands and Poland.
CEO Yann Lechelle, said: “Going live in the UK is another exciting step forward in Scaleway’s international expansion, advancing our mission to build and scale the cloud in a way that makes sense to our customers and their end-users. The UK market is of paramount importance for Scaleway’s global growth strategy, and we’re looking forward to showcasing our innovative technologies and outstanding customer experience to our UK customers.”
