Amazon Web Services Event in New York

I’m polishing my presentation for the AWS event in NYC today. Polaris Venture Partners is the exclusive sponsor because we believe that what Amazon is doing is good for startups. AWS lowers the cost of experimentation online, which helps more ideas come to life and get feedback from the market.

The event is from 2-7pm at The Great Hall, Cooper Union, 7 East Seventh Street. Attendance is free and there will be good food + cocktails. Stop by if you can. The agenda is as follows:

2:00 – 2:30     Opening Statements/Andy Jassy, Senior Vice President, AWS
2:30 – 3:00     Overview of AWS/Mike Culver
3:00 – 4:00     Presentations from startups using AWS
4:00 – 4:15     Break
4:15 – 5:00     “Beyond Bootstrapping”  (conversation led by me)
5:00 – 7:00     Cocktail Reception

  1. any possibility of meeting after your presentation? Good luck with it.

  2. Gene, I look forward to meeting you at the event. It may be a little hectic there–about 300 people have registered–so let’s keep it fluid. I’m in NYC frequently, though, so we can find a time to meet.

  3. Simeon, great.
    I have just discovered your blog while preparing for this AWS event and I see that areas of ecosystems, mobile applications, long tail and widgets could be starting points of our conversation. I will be posting specific comments in those areas of your blog.

  4. Will you be posting your presentation online? I thought it was great and would like to share with my entrepreneur community.
