Introducing the New AWS for FinTech Startups Site

Guest post by Kathryn Van Nuys, AWS

I’m Kathryn Van Nuys, and I am the North American head of fintech startup business development. My colleagues and I work with financial technology (fintech) startups around the globe to help build, launch, grow, and scale their businesses. From banking to payments to insurance and more, the AWS Fintech team is here to help startups achieve success using AWS’ capabilities.

To that end, I’m excited to announce the launch of AWS’ new fintech startup website, which highlights AWS resources for global fintech startups. Fintech founders and executives searching for industry best practices can come here to learn about startup programs, compliance and security resources, and updated fintech case studies. On the newly launched website, you will also find prescriptive guidance and opportunities to connect directly with the AWS Fintech team.

Our customers are leveraging AWS’ services to build fully regulated digital banks, global payments operations, and securities trading applications. BlockFi, for example, built a company on AWS that offers wealth management products to cryptocurrency investors and their CEO, Zac Prince, shared that “the support we have received from AWS since day 1 including the Activate program, technical support, and specialized fintech resources has been nothing short of fantastic.”

Other customers, like fintech startup Behalf, have found value in our go-to-market programs, including the AWS Partner Network (APN). Their CEO, Rob Rosenblatt, said that “AWS has been a powerful partner in helping Behalf build robust and secure infrastructure to power our B2B financing platform. Having access to APN has been instrumental in navigating the current fintech landscape, and the AWS Fintech team has been an excellent strategic partner for our continued growth.”

We will continue to add new content to the website, which will serve as a one-stop destination for all growing fintech startup needs. Come learn from founders who are choosing to build on the most secure, compliant, resilient cloud.
