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
