We are excited to announce a partnership with Amazon and AWS, which in a nutshell allows ANY AND ALL presenting companies who are chosen and simply attend and give their 1 minute pitch at a Startup253 Founders Series event $3,000 credit towards their hosting on Amazon.  Yes, seriously.

We are very excited about this special offer with Amazon, and are grateful and thankful they view Startup253 as a strategic partner.
