'They’ve received some fantastic entries from around the world for the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Global Start-Up Challenge. Have you started your application? If not, its ok, you still have about one month to enter. Now in its 6th year, this contest is a way for promising start-ups to get noticed and compete for an opportunity to win some great rewards.

This year’s challenge offers big prizes, including 4 grand prizes of $100K in combined cash and credits, 1:1 VC meetings with Madrona, First Round Capital, and SV Angel (and others), global PR support, and more. If your start-up is built using AWS, we want you to apply! You can be at any stage of the development process to enter, as long as you are using at least one AWS product as part of your solution.


This year, we will announce one Grand Prize winner in each of the following categories:

The winners will be flown to the final pitch event in San Francisco on January 24, 2013, where they will pitch to the AWS Executive Judges, and present their idea to a room of like-minded start-ups and entrepreneurs. This is a great opportunity to give your business the kick start that it needs to take off.
