Free trial for summit attendees?

Copper Contributor

Appreciate all the conversations, sharing of use cases, and especially the copilot demo. I am in! But I'm getting lost in the options for nonprofits. My org is 8 people, and I've also heard that copilot is only available for orgs of 300+.

 

Is there a free trial available? If not, it'd be great if there were one--at least for the orgs who committed the time to join the summit in Bellevue. 

 

Appreciate everyone!

Hi @sujinator

 

@Ravileen provided a very good summary of the Copilot options here: Copilot Products: Breakdown - Microsoft Community Hub

 

The paid version, Copilot for Microsoft 365, did have a minimum 300 users but this was removed on Jan 15 and organisations of any size can now purchase it.

 

Not sure about a trial, but it's a great idea.

My career has been spent with small nonprofits. I was so excited at the Day One session to hear, from multiple presenters, that Microsoft is committed to the democratization of AI, that they hope we will help shape the positive aspects of these products and that our work will be left behind if we don't utilize these wonderful new tools. I think of the many nonprofits touching peoples lives where they operate on a shoestring budget, just a few paid staff and having time and funds to invest in new tools is often simply not possible. Is there not a way for Microsoft to give each small nonprofit access to these tools for one year (or more?) so we can benefit from them, get time to reap those benefits, and bring our board and others along the journey? (Canva offers their pro version free to nonprofits and it has made a huge change for several folks I know with limited staff) While $30/month may not be a barrier for some, it most definitely is for others.
