The Startup Coaching Startups – How AWS Focuses on Growing Talent

At Collision From Home 2021, a virtual conference event that will stream talks from tech CEOs, international policymakers, and global cultural figures and engage with some of the world’s most influential companies and fastest-growing startups, the AWS Startups team is hosting a number of MasterClasses. You can ask questions about building on AWS and more. We also have a roundtable taking place with a number of Canadian founders on Tuesday, April 20 at 3pm ET. Whether you need help today, or have an idea for a business started on a napkin (AWS’s origin story), we are excited to help you build.

AWS is headed to Toronto. Join us at Collision 2019.

Not only will we be eating poutine and exploring the streets of Night Summit, but AWS will be hosting Mentor Hours, where we’ll be connecting hundreds of startups to top speakers, lead investors, and members of the media, along with providing them with one-on-one time to ask questions.

Turo’s Peer-to-peer Car Marketplace Isn’t Slowing Down

According to Turo CEO Andre Haddad, there are almost 300 million cars in the United States and about 1.1 billion worldwide. While those numbers seem staggering, the average car is only used 10% of the time, per Haddad. Turo looks to fill that gap, offering a marketplace where car owners can rent out their cars to other users when available.
