Anytime Stories

Microsoft’s Anytime Funding is an incubator program that enables employees to pitch new products to senior leadership and earn project funding if their idea is accepted. The Anytime Stories site was created to promote the program as well as to inspire an innovation mindset among Microsoft employees. Each Anytime Funding incubation team’s progress is documented—from initial concept to product launch—allowing the entire company to follow—in real-time—the highs and lows of their innovation journey. MediaPlant developed a unique visual style for the site, pushing the boundaries of SharePoint Online to deliver attention-grabbing graphics and compelling page layouts to capture interest and maintain enthusiasm. Featured site content includes team mission statements, pitch decks, member spotlights, and project “snapshot” videos, as well as a podcast program and an ongoing series of virtual meetups. We also created fun motivational tools for the Anytime Funding teams, including a retro-styled game board that allows them to track their progress through key project milestones.
