Brace for Impact! The AWS Impact Accelerator program got off to a flying start—and it’s only the beginning of what this initiative has to offer. Get an inside look at what Impact Accelerator participants experience, and learn how to apply for the next Impact Accelerator Program.
Female founders receive just a portion of the funding that male founders do. That’s not just bad news for women who want to build a startup—it’s bad news for everybody. Women are the driving force behind a thriving economy. AWS recognizes the immense need for an increase in inclusivity in the startup ecosystem. That’s why we are excited to be launching applications for the second cohort of our Impact Accelerator, exclusively focused on women-led businesses.
In April, we announced a 3-year, $30 million commitment to the AWS Impact Accelerator, a series of programs is designed to help high-potential, pre-seed startups led by underrepresented founders succeed. We also launched the first of these programs, the AWS Impact Accelerator for Black Founders, and today we’re excited to announce the startups that will make up this inaugural cohort. Meet the startups, and learn more about this exciting opportunity.
Learn more about the new program that will provide up to $225,000 in cash and credits for early stage startups led by Black, women, Latino, and LGBTQIA+ entrepreneurs, as well as training, mentoring, and technical guidance. Then hear from three founders about what access to capital and resources means for the next generation.
