Hello Pavel!


Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization is a proud supporter of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Startups team, specifically focused on helping university startup programs get access to AWS resources to help their startups grow. 


CEO is again supporting the AWS US University Startup Competition, eligible university-affiliated cloud based and consumer product companies can apply for an equity-free cash prize, up to $20k. to help fund their ventures. The deadline for applications is Nov. 15th at 11:59 p.m. PT. The top 10 finalists will pitch their startups to a panel of investors and AWS Startup Team members at a virtual event, and three winners will be chosen for cash prizes and AWS Activate credits. All applicants can qualify for $1k in AWS Credits (*if eligible.)

I am writing today to invite you to pass this opportunity along to your students and any startups in your network. In addition, university startup organizations, such as Georgia State University, can earn $5,000 in cash for being one of the top 3 startup referrers to this competition. Should you like to partake in the top-referrer program, please reply to this e-mail with an estimate of how many applications you think you’ll generate so we can provide you with a custom tracking link. 


Thank you!
