APAC Start-Up Webinar Series
Nothing ever gets built without an idea first. And start-ups are no different: they start with a simple thought, a small idea. But what’s next? That idea then needs to be developed into a product and into a business. For that to happen, any start-up naturally moves through a number of stages in its lifecycle. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has helped many successful start-ups throughout this lifecycle. Start-ups like Airbnb, Dropbox, Instagram and Pinterest as well as many other start-ups in Asia have all benefited from AWS as they went from initial idea, to ‘Minimum Viable Product’ (MVP), to scale and ultimately to a successful, profitable business.

This four-part series of webinars explore how you can leverage AWS in your journey from idea to successful start-up. It explores key concepts, technologies, services, pricing models, and case studies. The first webinar provides a high-level overview of how start-ups are running lean and scaling fast on AWS. Each of the next three webinars will zoom into one specific stage of the start-up journey.

Webinars will be delivered by AWS subject matter experts and will also provide you with the opportunity to have an interactive Q&A session.

It then continues with a three hour hands-on tutorial in which participants use their own AWS accounts to design and deploy a highly-available web application. Both sessions end at the same time, and are followed by a joint reception where AWS Worldwide Public Sector team members, customers, and partners can network and discuss ways to help each other benefit from the new opportunities created by cloud computing.
