\The Start-up Project\ – Don’t miss it!

Following the success of “The Start-up Project” in Seattle, WA few months ago, Amazon Web Services decided to come to the city near you.  The Start-Up Project is half-day AWS-exclusive event geared towards start-up firms. Amazon Web Services will be holding several of these events in different “hot spots” around the country starting with Silicon Valley, San Francisco, New York and Boston.

If you are founder of a start-up company or thinking of starting one, this event is for you. Its a great opportunity to learn how Amazon Web Services empowers entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainable growth.

From the Announcement:
