When Dr Michelle Perugini, Presagen CEO and co-founder had the idea to build an Adelaide-based healthcare social network connecting clinics and medical data from around the world to build affordable, accessible AI-based healthcare products, they not only needed a partner that had global infrastructure and support but to also help them get the idea off the ground. They enrolled in the AWS Activate program which provided the startup AWS credits and technical expertise, allowing them to build a world-class, global scale product.
AWS Activate is just one of the many programs that we offer beyond our infrastructure services to support startups as they launch, grow, and scale. As a Startup, managing your funds (including Activate credits) while sharing the same challenges that larger organisations do, is key to your success. That rising spend, which tends to be highly variable, is bringing new sets of challenges to Startups, requiring them to transform how they review, reconcile, and optimise their cloud expenditure. To help with this challenge, startups can harness and deploy cloud service expense management capabilities form AWS that align with their overall cloud management strategy.
