AWS announces newest start-up program

AWS Build is a 10-week, all-virtual program that is now accepting applications.

Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS) has announced the launch of AWS Build, a new global program designed to support entrepreneurs early in their cloud journey to build, refine, and launch their innovative applications.

Over the course of 10 weeks in an all-virtual offering, a cohort of up to 500 start-up founders from around the world will receive business and technical guidance to best leverage the flexibility and scalability of AWS’s tech stack to launch their Minimum Viable Products (MVP). Start-ups will also learn technical fundamentals to incorporate the most advanced cloud technologies into their applications, from analytics and serverless to artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The program will also help founders make strategic decisions related to product development, monetization of their idea, where to find and when to use beta customers, and other relevant themes to successfully launch their products.

Founders selected for the program will receive up to $2,000 in AWS credits to help them build their products and services in the cloud. They will, however, be required to join AWS Activate, AWS’s startup hub.

The program begins October 9 and ends December 15. Applications are being accepted until September 22 at this link.
