About the event

Launching a successful startup takes more than building on the most flexible, reliable, and scalable infrastructure available today. At AWS Startup Day, you will learn from startup experts about best practices that go beyond designing your infrastructure.

There will be one business track and one technical track running in parallel. In the early stages of building your company, you manage a variety of responsibilities, so we encourage you to attend sessions in both tracks. Whether you’re the CTO, CEO or CXO, this day is dedicated to you, the founder, and all the ways Amazon can help your startup succeed.

Who should attend?

Early stage entrepreneurs who are pre-seed or bootstrapped and interested in learning how to grow their company through practical business and technical guidance.

Why you should attend
  • Hear from entrepreneurs who have built successful companies, VCs on what they look for in funding, and how you can partner with AWS.
  • Get inspired and share ideas with other startup leaders in your area.
  • Prepare for the challenges you'll face as you start to scale on both the business and engineering side.
  • Learn about some of our newest services from AWS to ensure your infrastructure is scalable and reliable.
