About
Building a minimum viable product (MVP) is something all startups do, but it's an unusual process. Unlike a prototype, MVPs focus your build on the necessary features first so you can get to market quickly and then return to add features as you scale. In this upcoming VB Live event, we’ll share some of the tools and methodologies for building your MVP on AWS. Find out how to pick the right technologies and use pre-configured architectures to speed up your development.

For early-stage startups, the goal of your MVP is to iterate quickly, trying new concepts, and deploying rapidly for early adopters. Usage data and customer feedback on your MVP is key to helping you zero in on what will make your product successful. Cloud services like AWS speed up your experimentation cycles, getting your product in front of customers faster, making it easier to add functionality as you get feedback, and lets you quickly expand your product’s functionality and feature set without having to stop and re-architect.

One reason startups choose AWS is because AWS enables startups to lower costs, become more agile, and innovate faster. But diving into building an MVP can be overwhelming. In this webinar, you will learn how to navigate the AWS cloud platform, choose the right technology for your use case, and successfully develop a minimum viable product in order to propel your startup on the path to success. (Plus, by signing up for AWS Activate, you’ll receive free tools, resources, architecture guidance, technical support, and up to $100,000 in AWS credits and so much more to help your startup succeed.)
