Sarwa Takes the Stress out of Investing
Sarwa is an online platform that aims to help young, busy, digitally savvy people in the Middle East build their savings by removing the cost and complexity of investing. Customers can sign up online within minutes and start investing with as little as $500. In this video, Sarwa Cofounder Nadine Mezher explains why she and her colleagues launched the company using Amazon Web Services (AWS). As a startup growing at 30 percent month-on-month, Sarwa requires scalability and speed. Security and compliance are also top priorities when handling customers’ sensitive financial data in a heavily regulated industry. Sarwa chose services such as AWS Lambda and AWS Elastic Beanstalk to begin trading as quickly as possible and ensure data availability and protection. The breadth of AWS services also helps Sarwa quickly bring new features to market for its customers.
