Amazon Web Services

Identifying the best information and resources to be sure you will get the business outcomes you need is challenging. For many successful small and medium-sized businesses, joining a community of like-minded business owners is an impactful way to get tailored information to facilitate the cloud decision journey. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is dedicated to advancing women owned businesses and helping them navigate their technology needs. That is why they are partnering with Visa and supporting their She’s Next initiative - to bring access to the tools and information that women need to feel empowered and to grow their business securely through the cloud. AWS and Visa have joined efforts to provide access to free membership to the AWS Connected Community where you can engage with on-demand content and trainings - from cloud and digital advertising to online seller resources - participate in events and workshops, listen to customer case studies, schedule free 1:1 consultations, and redeem discounts on software, Amazon Payment Services and AWS free credits. As a Community, we can help you overcome the common barriers of technology adoption and unlock the power of the cloud together.
