AWS Build Accelerator is designed to help founders make strategic decisions related to their startup’s product development. Throughout the 10 weeks, we’ll cover best practices for leveraging the AWS tech stack, along with technical fundamentals like analytics, data storage, and AI/ML. Founders will also learn how to make strategic decisions related to product development, like monetization and when to use beta customers.
The program is virtual and largely self-paced with the exception of live peer-to-peer gatherings and Ask Me Anything sessions with AWS Startup Solutions Architects.
AWS Build Accelerator is designed for early-stage tech or tech-enabled startups. We're talking startups beyond ideation that are ready to build, refine, and bring their Minimum Viable Product (MVP) to market. The program is industry and vertical agnostic, and we welcome startups with a CTO or technical lead who are currently leveraging cloud technologies to apply. While the program is open to startups from around the world, programming will be offered in English only.
To get the most from the program, founders need to be beyond the ideation stage. If you're still working on your idea, we have a wide range of always-on startup programs to support your development. The AWS Activate program provides you with AWS credits and other perks, Startup Resource Library provides on-demand technical and business content; and the AWS Lofts offers online programming to help you scale.
To get the most out of the program, startups must have a CTO or technical lead in place.
