Launch Your Startup at AWS re:Invent

Startup Launch reInvent 2015

Ready to Launch?

Is your startup disruptive, built on AWS, and ready to launch this fall?

AWS will invite five AWS-powered startups to launch their startup this October at our fourth annual Startup Launches event at the AWS re:Invent conference in Las Vegas.

Werner Vogels speaking at AWS reInvent 2015

This event showcases some of the hottest startups in the world, and provides a notable setting for these companies to introduce themselves and share their stories with the global tech community. Each selected startup will present to an audience that includes other hot startups, AWS customers, VCs, technology enthusiasts, AWS executives, and members of the press. Dr. Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon, will host the event. The launch announcements will each last five minutes, followed by a Q&A session with Werner. After the event each startup will be featured in a blog post, recapping the launch announcements.

Last Year’s Launches

Last year’s re:Invent Startup Launches event featured presentations by Boundary, Cloudius, Luminal, Temasys, and Threat Stack.

“The Startup Launches at re:Invent was the ideal opportunity for us to announce our product, Fugue. It provided us maximum visibility with our target audience — the engineers and technical leaders creating the future every day on AWS. Our participation continues to pay dividends.”
Josh Stella, CEO, Luminal

See You at re:Invent

The Startup Launches event isn’t the only startup-focused activity at re:Invent. There will be an AWS Startup Pavilion in the Expo Hall, a startup stop along the Pub Crawl, and additional startup sessions including a CTO-to-CTO session hosted by Werner.
