"I am excited about my upcoming trip to APAC and the AWS Lean Cloud event on April 3. Looking forward to meeting the local startup community and sharing some Lean Startup concepts with them."

- Eric Ries, Author of The Lean Startup

Premier Lean Startup Event in Asia Pacific

Since its inception in 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been providing cost-effective, robust and scalable technology infrastructure in-the-cloud to hundreds of thousands of companies across all sizes. Many successful companies have grown from startups to large global businesses. Examples of this success include Etsy, Flipboard, Foursquare, Playfish and SmugMug.

Whether you are an aspiring entrepreneur at the early stage, a venture scaling out, a VC, incubator, startup community, the event will provide you with the opportunity to find out how startups can use Amazon Web Services (AWS) to power a lean lifecycle when running, scaling, and iterating on your products while learning more about the Lean Startup approach!

Lean Cloud Program:

To support the growing startup movement in Asia Pacific, AWS is launching a dedicated program that aims to provide mentoring and training on lean cloud concepts and technology.

Reasons to attend:

  • Hear keynote by Chief Technology Officer of Amazon, Dr Werner Vogels, who will share his perspectives on the Lean Cloud and explain how to use Amazon Web Services (AWS) to power a lean lifecycle when running, scaling, and iterating on your products.
  • Have the unique opportunity to hear Eric Ries, author of the Best-selling "The Lean Startup", and talk about the Lean Startup. Discover this new approach to business that's being adopted around the world. It is changing the way companies are built and new products are launched.  Inspired by lessons from lean manufacturing, the Lean Startup approach relies on “validated learning,” rapid scientific experimentation, and a number of counter-intuitive practices that shorten product development cycles, measure actual progress, and learn what customers really want.
  • Learn from the experience of AWS Regional customers and listen to tips from VC and incubator.

Regional Events

The event will take place at the Australian Technology Park in Sydney. To make sure you can benefit from it, it will also be live webcasted it across APAC ! Also, we will be holding Satellite Events in Singapore and Seoul to allow the community to gather and network with the local AWS team!
