Sessions Descriptions


Welcome to Day 1


More startups have launched on AWS than anywhere else in the world. There's a reason why the biggest names in the startup world have been building on AWS for the past 13 years. Startups take on enormous challenges with limited resources. They leverage the latest technology to make a team of 1 perform like a team of 10.
These startups have paved the way and have helped pioneer the technological path for the next wave of entrepreneurs. We've learned a great deal helping these companies reach their 100 millionth customer, process their first billion orders, or help get their first satellite into space.
Learn how startups today are building on AWS, why now is the best time to start building, and why partnering with us will give your idea the best chance at becoming the next big thing.

Panel: Fundraising Essentials for Every Entrepreneur


We’ll start with a key question: Is raising Venture Capital right for you? Then we’ll go into the process that serial founders execute with fundraising: How to prospect the right investors, how to make contact and frame a fundraise narrative and how to generate a sense of urgency with investors to close your round as quickly as possible. Make sure you can fundraise like the most experienced founders and avoid dragging it out.

Confessions of a Founder


“Inventing and pioneering requires a willingness to be misunderstood for long periods of time.” Jeff Bezos.
Welcome to the life of a startup founder. It's all about building something the world has never seen, and then convincing the world it needs it, and wants it. For every founding team there will not just be misunderstanding, but endless advice. Pivot. Fail fast. Get lean. Raise as much money as you can. Iterate, iterate, iterate. It all sounds so logical, even easy, but as every founder will tell you, it never is. So what works, and what doesn't? Hear it straight from a founder who has been through it all, and has wisdom to share.

Tools for Building your MVP on AWS


Early stage startups are time and resource constrained and need to quickly get to product market fit. This session is for startups who want to find out about the best ways to build their minimal viable product (MVP) on AWS. You’ll get an overview of how startups build MVPs using services like API Gateway, Amplify, Lambda, Managed Kubernetes on AWS, Lightsail, and Database options. After this session you’ll be able to pick the right technologies and use pre-configured architectures to speed up your development.
