Amazon Web Services (AWS) has launched AWS Build, a new initiative to help early-stage startups.
Up to 500 founders from all over the globe will be selected to take part in a 10-week program where they will learn how to successfully kick-start their businesses.
Entrepreneurs will receive both technical and business guidance, learning how to effectively leverage AWS’s technology stack, as well as how to incorporate advanced cloud features like analytics, artificial intelligence, and serverless computing.
The program also guides founders on strategic decisions related to product development, finding beta customers, monetization, and more.
Entrepreneurs entered into the program will receive up to $2,000 in AWS credits to help them develop their products and services in the cloud.
The program will run fully online from October 9 to December 15. Weekly virtual engagements include technical office hours with AWS experts, interactive sessions with venture investors and industry leaders, and networking events with peers.
Once the program wraps up, founders will join the AWS Build community, a global network of peers and technical experts who provide ongoing collaboration and advice.
Applications for AWS Build are now open and will be accepted until September 22, 2023.
Interested entrepreneurs can sign up to take part in the AWS Build program here.
