When Amazon and Microsoft announced a deal to invest $1.5bn in a joint venture, we asked, how do they plan to make the deal work?
Now that Amazon and Windows 8 have been released, we have a new and exciting option: Microsoft and Amazon are teaming up to create a new Microsoft-Amazon investment vehicle.
While Microsoft’s new fund is not a venture capital company, it is a “fund-to-equity” partnership, which is similar to a private equity investment.
Microsoft and the company are set to create an investment vehicle called Microsoft/Amazon Capital Fund.
The fund will fund Microsoft’s Surface business and its HoloLens headset.
Microsoft will own 60% of the fund.
That will make Microsoft’s investment in Microsoft’s devices a net-positive for the Microsoft company.
It is a bold move by Microsoft, and it may have the potential to be a game-changer for the entire PC industry.
Microsoft’s plans are not without precedent.
In 2010, the company announced a similar fund-to/equity partnership with Google.
Microsoft bought Google for $19bn.
The Google fund was one of the most successful investments in history, and Google is still a dominant player in the PC market today.
But the Google fund also raised a lot of questions about how Microsoft’s investments would work.
One big difference between Microsoft and Google’s investments is that Google invests in companies with the same core competencies.
Microsoft has always had an edge in the cloud computing market.
That advantage has increased significantly over the past few years.
Microsoft currently holds a majority of the market in virtualization, which makes Microsoft a major player in that market.
But Microsoft has struggled in other areas of the PC business.
In its latest fiscal year, Microsoft’s hardware business fell 2% to $2.5 billion.
In the hardware business, the software business has grown by a huge margin.
It’s now worth $4.5 trillion, up from $2 trillion just two years ago.
This is where Microsoft has an advantage.
The company has a strong presence in the consumer market, where it has been able to leverage its expertise in the enterprise market.
The same applies to Microsoft’s cloud computing business.
Microsoft owns a majority stake in Azure, a company that runs the vast majority of Microsoft’s Windows operating systems and services.
Azure is a cloud computing platform that allows customers to host, run and scale their own applications and applications services.
Microsoft also has the ability to build software for Azure that is designed to work across all of Microsoft platforms, from Windows to Office.
In addition, Microsoft owns an impressive amount of licensing revenue from Azure.
It can sell these licenses to enterprises who are willing to pay Microsoft a premium for the ability it provides to run and run their applications.
This has made Microsoft an attractive partner for many companies, including Amazon, which bought into Azure in 2016.
In 2018, Amazon invested in Microsoft, along with a slew of other companies.
Microsoft could benefit from this relationship.
Microsoft does not have the same revenue streams as Microsoft.
It has a much bigger share of the cloud infrastructure market, but it does not compete with Amazon’s cloud infrastructure business.
Also, Microsoft has been one of Microsofts biggest competitors in the smartphone market, which accounts for 70% of its revenue.
It does not want to lose this advantage to Amazon, and Amazon could also benefit from the relationship.
Amazon also has a major investment in Surface.
Microsoft is also working on a Surface-powered PC, and this partnership could potentially make a big difference for the company.
The other thing to keep in mind about Microsoft’s fund is that it is not an investment in hardware or software.
Instead, Microsoft is creating a fund-for-equities vehicle that will invest in hardware and software.
The name of the vehicle is Microsoft/Google.
The investment vehicle will fund a group of companies called Microsoft Ventures, which will help the Microsoft/Microsoft investment fund achieve its goals.
Microsoft Ventures is the same entity that bought Google.
The deal is set to begin on March 2, 2019, and is expected to close by the end of 2019.
