AWS Activate Partnership

Privileged Access

AWS wires you to an army of talent that is available in a free advisory capacity. As an example, our solution architects have deep industry knowledge coupled with a mastery of AWS services and experience working with customers to solve problems and build amazing things. They can save countless hours by sharing best practices, sanity checking architecture, cost optimizing, providing peaks and access to upcoming capabilities, and consulting on new and audacious applications all while keeping security and regulatory compliance front and center.

Credits

AWS Activate is our benefits program designed to help early-stage startups (i.e. pre-series B) experiment risk-free with cloud infrastructure and services. Underscore portfolio companies are entitled to up to $100,000 in promotional credits. Portfolio companies should enroll in Activate here and use OrgID {1kUDL}.

Market

If and when appropriate, we want to help companies raise their public visibility and tell their story globally. Many find this useful just from the standpoint of recruiting talent. Others find it builds their credibility in the market. We’re forever on the hunt for transformational companies whose results and stories will inspire others. If and when appropriate we can also explore opportunities to partner in approaching the market or facilitate connections with key stakeholders across the ecosystem in an

effort to win business.
