Hear from EdTech Startups
From idea to IPO and beyond, AWS is the infrastructure standard for education’s technology ecosystem. Through AWS EdStart, we provide qualifying EdTech startups with the low cost, easy to use infrastructure needed to scale and grow a business of any size.
“The AWS EdTech Startup program is a dream come true for any bootstrapped startup. It gives SKOOKi a perfect jumpstart and peace of mind to iterate the product and processes while utilizing the most trustworthy and robust infrastructure,” said AliSher Rakhimov, Founder and CEO, SKOOKi.
“Vocareum was built upon the notion that cloud infrastructure paired with open source technology will transform how students and professionals learn to code. Our mission is to improve assessment efficiency, student engagement, and learning outcomes with our cutting-edge and cost-effective computing labs. We are excited to find a home with AWS’s EdTech Startup Program, scaling our solution for educators worldwide,” said Sanjay Srivastava, CEO, Vocareum.
“The EdTech industry has seen marked growth in investment due to the impact it has on students globally and the potential for disruption. The AWS EdStart program from Amazon Web Services is timely. It enables startup EdTechs to build and deliver education solutions faster and more cost effectively than before by utilizing the benefits the cloud has to offer. Investors want startups to focus on innovation rather than infrastructure, and AWS EdStart helps education entrepreneurs keep their focus on student outcomes,” said Michael Cohn, Principal, GSV Acceleration.
Startups can apply to join AWS EdStart if they are less than five years old, based in the United States, and have less than $10M in revenue.
