Technical Advisory Services and Customized Material Now Available for AWS CloudStart

We are pleased to announce enhancements to the AWS CloudStart program to accelerate digital transformation with enhanced tools, trainings, and practice environments.

AWS CloudStart supports Economic Development Organizations (EDOs) and small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) by providing resources to educate, train, and help them embrace the cost-effectiveness of the AWS Cloud. The current program provides benefits, such as virtual training material, Quiklabs, and AWS Promotional Credits, to approved applicants.

Curated material and technical advisory services are now available. To accelerate their journey to the cloud, EDO and SME customers can collaborate with AWS technical advisors on select global deployments and technical strategies and apply knowledge and lessons learned to their own digital transformation. Soon to come, these materials will be posted in an exclusive user portal with login access to AWS CloudStart customers.

  •  “We are very grateful for the support of AWS CloudStart, and look forward to cementing our collaboration. Such support will certainly help our innovative companies grow and scale,” said Reem Goussous, Endeavor Jordan Managing Director.
  • “As small businesses leverage a broader portfolio of digital solutions, they can see an increase in agility, while simultaneously lowering costs and reducing time to innovation,” said Zandile Keebine, GirlCode founder, said.

The AWS Cloud enables customers focused on the public sector to be responsive and agile while allowing them to refocus time and resources traditionally spent building or managing IT infrastructures towards their core business. Through the key enhancements now offered by AWS CloudStart, EDOs can expand the use of the cloud, accelerate growth, and strengthen the surrounding economy.
