Amazon Web Services Start-Up Tour visits Toronto’s Web Services team is going on tour again, visiting eleven cities over the next two months to share stories about how AWS can help entrepreneurs. The tour will make three stops outside the US, in London, Amsterdam, and Toronto.

Here’s why Amazon thinks you should attend:

  • Understand how to integrate Amazon Web Services into your business
  • Find ways to cut fixed infrastructure costs while increasing reliability and scalability
  • Learn from successful start-ups about their use of Amazon Web Services
  • Network with start-up leaders and investors from your area

The free, half-day event will arrive in Toronto on September 16th, 2008. Starting at 2pm, local start-ups will explain how they use AWS to help power their businesses. The event will finish with a networking reception. Space is limited, so you need to RSVP.

As a long-time Amazon S3 user, I really wish the tour was making a stop in western Canada! Maybe next time?
