AWS Activate is a program designed to provide your startup with the resources you need to get started on AWS. The Portfolio Plus Package allows you to choose one of two credit options. You may select up to $15,000 AWS Promotional Credit for 2 years, where the exact amount is determined by the organization through which you apply, or $100,000 AWS Promotional Credit for 1 year.

Selecting a credit option that best fits your specific startup needs is important. You may find the AWS TCO calculator helpful in evaluating your usage and expected monthly costs. Please choose your Activate credit option carefully because you will not be able to change it later.
