OneSoft Posts Update to June 1, 2016 Press Release Re: Microsoft Ventures Demo Day

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 9, 2016) - OneSoft Solutions Inc. (the "Company" or "OneSoft") (TSX VENTURE:OSS) is filing this document as an update to the press release posted by the Company on June 1, 2016, as a follow up to the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator Demo Day event which took place on June 2, 2016.

Enclosed are links to view the pitches online that were presented to the audience in Seattle, Washington and streamed live, by the nine companies that worked through the Accelerator program for Machine Learning and Data Sciences which commenced on February 2, 2016. These nine companies, including OneBridge Solutions Inc. were selected by Microsoft Ventures from 721 software start-ups in 50 countries who applied to participate in the program.

As part of Accelerator, Microsoft Ventures expects to contribute services and benefits which total approximately US $600,000 for each of these nine companies, comprised of cash grants to offset travel and subsistence expenses incurred by the participating companies who worked out of the Microsoft office facilities in Seattle during the four-month sprint, free access to software, and credits for use of Microsoft's Azure platform to a maximum of US$ 500,000 during the next three years.

Microsoft's motivation to select and provide these benefits for the participating companies is to assist to advance revolutionary software start-ups that can potentially invent, develop and deploy cloud solutions which accommodate big data and Machine Learning applications, Microsoft's expectation is that such disruptive applications will drive consumption of Azure and other Microsoft cloud technology components on a world-wide basis, and ultimately replace legacy software solutions with new cloud solutions that are built on Microsoft's cloud platform and services.

The Demo Day event served to conclude the four-month technology and business development sprint that was conducted out of Microsoft's Seattle facilities, and provided the participating companies with an opportunity to present their companies and projects to invited guests which included analysts, press, investors and the public.

"We were certainly honored to kick off the Demo Day event, which attracted a variety of North American and international analysts and investors" stated Tim Edward, President of OneBridge. "We now look forward to exploring scenarios that may potentially be synergistic to our business and corporate development efforts." Brandon Taylor, CTO and President of OneBridge USA added, "From a technology perspective, having concluded the Accelerator sprint in Seattle, our focus is now on our Private Preview program, which is designed to accelerate the incorporation of customer use cases and validation, with the objective being to deliver general release to market of the first phase of our new solutions by Q4 of this calendar year."
