To support the growing startup movement in Asia Pacific, AWS is launching a dedicated program that aims to provide mentoring and training on lean cloud concepts and technology.

Reasons to Attend

  • Have the unique opportunity to hear Eric Ries, a successful entrepreneur and author of the New York Times bestseller The Lean Startup. Discover this new approach to business that’s being adopted around the world. It is changing the way companies are built and new products are launched. Inspired by lessons from lean manufacturing, the “Lean Startup” approach relies on “validated learning,” rapid scientific experimentation, and a number of counter-intuitive practices that shorten product development cycles, measure actual progress, and learn what customers really want.
  • Learn from the experience of AWS international customers and listen to tips from VCs and incubators.

The event will take place at the Australian Technology Park in Sydney. To make sure you can benefit from it, it will also be livestreamed across Asia Pacific! Also, we will be holding Satellite Events in Singapore and Seoul to allow the community to gather and network with the local AWS team!
