Clients of the Missouri Innovation Center are eligible for a valuable package of training and credits from Amazon Web Services. Amazon markets AWS as a service to provide large computing capacity quicker and cheaper than a client company building an actual physical server farm. Some of the world’s hottest startups, including Airbnb, Slack, and Robinhood, have leveraged the power of AWS to quickly scale.

All other clients can receive the AWS Activate Portfolio Package which includes up to $5,000 in AWS Promotional Credit for up to 1 year.
