AWS' mission is to help startups succeed. For that, we have designed AWS Startup Academy, a program to support startups kick off, scale and grow with AWS.

During the next sessions we will focus on relevant topics for early stage startups, either technical or business, to help you find the tools you need to take your business or project to the next level. Sessions will be delivered by a mix of ecosystem players, AWS experts and customers who have had experience in the topics.

AWS Startup Academy is not only for those startups in the beginning of the cloud journey though, it could also help those who are cloud native but are looking to get more familiar with AWS services and products.
