Get ready for Startup Day 2018, San Francisco

AWS Startup DayAWS Startup Day 2018 is coming to AWS San Francisco Loft next week! Can’t make it in person? Here’s the link to the Twitch live stream. On Wednesday, April 18th, over a dozen startup founders, entrepreneurs, technical specialists, and venture capitalists will be delivering a series of dynamic talks, panels, and learning sessions at AWS’ Loft space at 1446 Market St. Whether you’re an early-stage startup that is looking to get general tips, or a later-stage startup looking for ways to further grow your business, there will be something new and of value for you at Startup Day.

This free, full-day event is specifically aimed at startup founders and technical individuals and will provide them with the opportunity to network with other attendees and hear advice from those who have been there before. Startup Day is an excellent chance to engage in educational sessions and offers two distinct tracks: Business and Technical. The sessions and the overall event are designed to provide insight on emerging trends and aid in accelerating startup growth and development for all participants.

This year’s Startup Day will feature a keynote presentation from Gina Bianchini of Mighty Networks and a VC panel with Ted Wang from Cowboy Ventures, Trae Vassallo from Defy Partners, and Shruti Gandhi from Array Ventures. Following these general sessions, the technical track will feature AWS Solutions Architects speaking on a variety of topics, ranging from security, AI, and infrastructure costs. The business track will star Matt Van Horn from June Life, Lisha Li from Amplify Partners, and Danielle D’Agostaro from Alchemist Accelerator.

Don’t miss out on what is sure to be another day filled with fascinating talks, networking opportunities, and learning sessions. You can check out the full agenda details here. And here’s a look at Startup Day New York last year, to give you a sense of what to expect:
