On March 24th at the AWS Pop-up Loft, five innovative startups will demo their latest products or services in front of a panel of their peers. The pitch event will be followed by a spring social, including craft beers, wine, appetizers, music and more.

Join us at the AWS Loft at 6PM on March 24th for our pitch event and spring social. Each party-goer has the opportunity to be part of our audience panel, who will vote on which category each startup pitch best represents. After the pitches complete we’ll turn up the music and keep the party rolling—you can grab a drink, eat some snacks, chat with the pitch participants, or just hang out and take in the scene.

RSVP to attend


Each startup will have five minutes to pitch their business to an audience of entrepreneurs and technology enthusiasts. The audience will judge the pitches based on the following five categories. Once the pitches are complete, the audience will vote, and each startup will be matched with the category they best represent. 

  • Audience favorite
  • Most original idea
  • Most polished presentation
  • Most impressive tech infrastructure
  • Most likely to grow exponentially

Each of the five startups who are selected to pitch will receive the following. In addition, the startup selected as the overall favorite will return to the Loft later in the year to lead a "Startup Spotlight" evening technical presentation.

  • $10,000 free Amazon Web Services credits, valid for 1 year
  • Free access to 5 hours of 1:1 virtual office hours with AWS solutions architects
  • Feature in the AWS “Startup Spotlight” series on the AWS Startup Blog
  • 3 months of AWS Support (Business Level)
