OneBridge Solutions Inc., a Subsidiary of OneSoft Solutions Inc., Provides Update as it Commences Microsoft Ventures Accelerator Program

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 5, 2016) - OneSoft Solutions Inc. (the "Company" or "OneSoft") (TSX VENTURE:OSS), a North American developer of cloud business solutions is pleased to confirm that its wholly owned subsidiary, OneBridge Solutions Inc. ("OneBridge") has commenced the previously announced Microsoft Ventures Accelerator program to integrate Microsoft's machine learning and other new Cloud technologies into its software applications for the oil and gas pipeline industry.

Microsoft Ventures Accelerator is a mentor-driven program aimed at assisting companies to accelerate their development and scale up their operations. Companies accepted to the program gain access to top business mentors, cutting edge technology and marketing experts, office space and other resources to help them advance their business strategies. The program provides exposure to investors who are seeking cloud technology investment opportunities and provides warm introductions to major corporations who are Microsoft customers, who may be suited to become early adopters of the new OneBridge cloud solutions.

Over the past few months, Microsoft has been searching for the most dynamic entrepreneurs with the biggest visions and most disruptive, innovative ideas. This search involved travel to 12 cities and discussions with more than 2,500 business founders, from which 721 companies from more than 50 countries around the world were investigated by Microsoft Ventures.

"After a rigorous review process, we narrowed the field to 26 startups and invited them to Seattle for "Jury Day", the last step in our selection process" stated Hanan Lavy, director of the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator in Seattle. "Our panel of 50 jury members, most of them external to Microsoft, included investors, partners, customers, entrepreneurs, data scientists and even psychologists. I am thrilled to now announce that OneBridge Solutions has been selected as one of the 10 companies to participate in our next Seattle Accelerator for machine learning and data science. There's no doubt machine learning and data science will be used to reinvent, digitalize or eliminate business processes and products in the near future, and Microsoft's technology fits very well as integral components of the strategies and software applications that OneBridge envisions."

"We are very excited to be involved with the Accelerator project with Microsoft" remarked Brandon Taylor, CTO and President of the OneBridge USA operation. "The expertise and resources that Microsoft has assembled for this program provide an extraordinary opportunity to advance not only our technology development, but also our corporate and business development initiatives."

Tim Edward, President of OneBridge Canada added, "Accelerator will assist us immensely to scale our applications and business. We look forward to working with our early adopter customers who will play an important role in partnering with us to evolve the current industry software and methodologies to revolutionary next-generation cloud solutions."

The 2016 Seattle Accelerator program which commenced on February 2, 2016 culminates in "Demo Day" on June 2, 2016, when the participants will have the opportunity to pitch their companies and products to an audience that will be assembled by Microsoft Ventures. We anticipate the audience will include approximately 250 attendees comprised of potential customers and investors, and is expected to generate significant visibility into the OneBridge business and opportunity.

Certain OneBridge personnel will be resident at Microsoft Venture's Seattle office facility (the "cloud capital of the world"), throughout the duration of the program. To assist with start-up costs, Microsoft expects to contribute more than US $500,000 to each participant of Accelerator, by way of grants to offset travel and subsistence expenses, free software, developer tools and support, and Azure usage credits which may be used during the next three years.
