  • Make sure you have a company website that’s live or public startup profile (note: staging websites won’t be accepted).
  • When you click the application link, you will be prompted to sign into your AWS account. Make sure to log in to the AWS Account where you would like to receive credits, as you won’t be able to transfer credits to another account in the future. If you do not have an AWS account yet, you can open one for free here.
