Over a year ago, we launched the Meraki Startup Kit, giving away over 100 kits of Meraki networking gear to innovative startups. In the process of evaluating applications and profiling Startup Kit recipients on our blog, we’ve gotten to know a number of remarkable companies – it has been incredibly exciting to see recipients like 500px, Good Eggs, Sosh, and many others grow their businesses on Cisco Meraki networks.
We have had so much positive feedback that we’re bringing back the program for a second round. Cisco Meraki hardware is enterprise class, easy to set up, and low maintenance – the perfect infrastructure for startups relying on rock-solid networks to build their products and businesses.
A Startup Kit provides a full stack of the hardware and software needed for a complete network:
802.11n tri-radio wireless access points
An enterprise-grade security appliance
A Power over Ethernet switch (if needed)
A five year license for Meraki’s cloud-based management platform
We will be awarding Startup Kits to a select group of companies based on their ability to put a Cisco Meraki network to good use. We are especially excited to take nominations of new companies from our previous Startup Kit recipients.
To apply for a startup kit, fill out the short application form by April 1, 2014.
