    This AWS Startup Day is designed for underrepresented entrepreneurs who are ready to take an idea and turn it into a company - not just a product.

    If you are still in the idea stage, Startup Day will help you test and validate that idea. For those who have already taken an initial swing at building a company, you’ll hear how to take it to the next level.

    At AWS Startup Day, you'll learn from AWS experts, VC's, and your fellow startups about how to go from that initial intellectual spark to MVP, and what it takes to land seed funding. You'll get a glimpse into the challenges you'll face early on, along with the do's and dont's. Startup Day is also an opportunity to meet your people, the other builders in your backyard, to share ideas, founder hacks, and the inspiring moments that keep everyone sprinting forward.

    Governments are increasingly investing in cloud-based solutions and services. This paradigm shift is creating massive opportunities for IT vendors to modernize in order to shape this digital transformation, and for startups to consider the public sector as a customer base. We believe that cloud acumen will grow in its importance as a business differentiator, particularly for small IT businesses and technology startups. As part of our commitment to the growth of small and historically disadvantaged businesses, Amazon Web Services (AWS) seeks to expand our pipeline of women and minority-owned enterprises (WMBEs) who can deliver a wide-range of cloud-based products and services to government across state, local, and federal jurisdictions.

    Therefore, AWS has teamed up with 1863 Ventures to launch AWS Mission: Possible - Small Business and Government Innovation, a multi-city initiative to find and engage with WMBEs in key markets across the United States to highlight the opportunities enabled by cloud computing and AWS in the public sector. This 1.5 day workshop will examine the business case for investing in the cloud and the City of Philadelphia’s own journey, we will introduce our Amazon Partner Network (APN), including how we work with startups and small businesses to capture new business opportunities with the government, and we will provide next steps for those who are interested in working with AWS!
