“We got connected with AWS Activate through our investors at SignalFire and couldn’t be happier. Not only do the AWS credits really help when starting out as an early-stage company, but the technical support made it easy to launch, and problem solve as we have grown. The Activate Console specifically was also great, surfacing useful content like training tutorials and launch announcements.”
