Startup Central is Heading to Mexico City!

AWS Summit 2018 Mexico CityAWS Summits is a free, global event series that brings the cloud community together and next week, AWS will be in Mexico City where Stephen Orban (General Manager, New Initiative, AWS Marketplace) will be delivering the keynote. The intent of the summit is to provide educational value to attendees and also demonstrate how one can design and eventually operate infrastructures and applications through leveraging AWS.

At this year’s summit, Startup Central will make its second debut, which is intended to provide a collaborative experience for attendees who are looking to develop and build their startups. Features of Startup Central are also aimed at giving attendees the opportunities to learn, ask questions, and make valuable connections.

  • Startup Central: This main hub is a place where startups can meet, listen to tech talks by other startups, and get in-person answers to AWS technical questions.
  • Ask a Startup Expert Bar: AWS startup experts will be onsite throughout the day of the summit to answer any technical questions you may have, whether they be product/service specific, or foundational questions you may want clarification on. No appointment necessary!
  • Startup Talks featuring Hot Startups: Join us at Startup Central’s theater for a series of dynamic talks from other startup companies’ CEOs, CTOs, and lead engineers. They will chat about some of the projects they’re working on, products and services that they’ve leveraged, and how they’ve utilized AWS to ultimately find success. Featured startups include Inkuvi, Decidata, Wizeline, Conekta, Civica Digital, and Konfio.
