Launch Your Startup at AWS re:Invent

Sitting here at my desk in Seattle, I am surrounded by colleagues that are working non-stop to make this year’s AWS re:Invent conference the best one yet! I get to hear all about the keynotes, sessions, and the big party without even leaving my desk.

In 2013, five exciting startups had the opportunity to launch at re:Invent in a session emceed by Amazon CTO Werner Vogels. Representatives from Koality, CardFlight, Runscope, SportXast, and Nitrous.IO each presented for five minutes and fielded Werner’s questions for another minute.

The tradition will continue in 2014. If your AWS-powered startup is currently in stealth mode or if you are already out-and-about and are ready to announce a major feature on stage with Werner, I would like to invite you to apply to do so at re:Invent.
