SoftLayer will provide the program’s startup companies a $1,000 credit per month for 12 months for SoftLayer services (including cloud, dedicated, or hybrid solutions), a direct channel to SoftLayer thought leaders, and co-marketing activities including case studies, customer stories, press releases, and more.

“We’re extremely pleased to join in the work Tech Wildcatters is doing,” said George Karidis, Chief Strategy Officer for SoftLayer. “There is nothing more important to us than fostering the companies that will innovate all new applications and services, just as we have worked to transform our part of the technology industry. We look forward to watching the next Facebook and Google emerge and change everything all over again.”

Every spring and fall, Tech Wildcatters selects 8-10 new technology companies to attend a 12-week “bootcamp,” and provides them with up to $25,000 in funding and an opportunity to present to angel investors, venture capitalists, and corporate development teams. The program focuses on delivering exceptional mentorship, leveraging an impressive roster of successful entrepreneurs committed to providing guidance, and insight across all aspects of technology and business.

“Tech Wildcatters is proud to partner with SoftLayer to bring our 2011 spring class best-in-class connectivity and cloud services,” said Gabriella Draney, Co-founder and Managing Partner of Tech Wildcatters. “After a very successful inaugural year in 2010, Tech Wildcatters decided to take its program even further by calling on SoftLayer because of their fully-automated solutions that empower companies no matter the size with complete access, control, security, and scalability that they need to scale. SoftLayer, like Tech Wildcatters, has the ability to take companies to the next level of success with knowledge, expertise, and power.”
