Does anyone know the process of becoming a microsoft partner for an organisation. What the requirements and process are?

There exist several partnership programs in Microsoft: for resellers, for ISVs, for academic organizations. Which one are you looking for? – Eugene Mayevski 'EldoS Jan 6 '11 at 7:07
We're a re-seller, getting started was as simple as filling out some forms. I think so long as you have a valid business registration the process is quite painless. – Tim Post Jan 6 '11 at 9:00

I became a Microsoft Partner (atleast I think so, I get the newsletter :) by filling in some online survery. Then I got to buy Visual Studio and some other tools really cheaply (like $500) so that was nice, not sure if it was some special offer though.
