The aws First program started in 2014. During the summer months they selected the 10 best teams from the many applications they received, focusing on the entrepreneurial motivation and potential of the team.
October 2nd the 10 teams – 31 young entrepreneurs between 18 and 22 – kicked off what will no doubt be an exciting year supported by the aws First Business Lab.
Each team gets assigned an experienced mentor, a scholarship of €7200, access to networking-events like Pioneers and Entrepreneurship Summit Berlin, training sessions put together in collaboration with WhataVenture and a team desk at a co-working space.
We have welcomed Thomas Steinlechner, Dominik Kovacs and Yuki Trippel from life science team ART (Anastomosis Robot Tool) and Nikolaus Müller, Philipp Unger and Maximilian Leithner from team Soapbox, developing a recording and streaming service platform, at sektor5.
