Amazon Increases AWS Credits for Innovation Place Tenants

You heard right! As of Monday, February 24, Amazon is increasing the AWS credits Innovation Place tenants can claim from $3,000 to $5,000. Amazing! Being a tenant at Innovation Place just got that much better.

Here’s a rundown of what Innovation Place tenants could be eligible for in their benefits packages and an FAQ about the changes.

What could you be eligible for as an Innovation Place Tenant?

- $5,000 in AWS Promotional Credit valid for 2 years

- 1 year of Business Support (up to $1,500)

- Opportunities to Qualify for Additional Credits

What do you need to know?

- AWS provides startups with low-cost, easy-to-use infrastructure needed to scale and grow any size business

- If your business applied for Innovation Place’s previous benefits, it is recommended you use the majority of your initial credits before seeking additional credits (applying immediately “starts the clock” on credits and may result in earlier expiration dates)

- Once you have used the majority of the initial package, you are welcome to contact AWS to see if you qualify for more credits

Please visit our Partnerships page for more details on our AWS Activate partnership and other partnerships offered to Innovation Place tenants.
