About the workshop
This workshop will offer you a holistic understanding of the whole process: from the application stage to successfully finishing a PreSeed-Project. You will learn what aws considers ‘innovative’ and ‘high-tech’, what should be included in your application (structural information, team, terms, timetables, business model, etc.) and what are the follow-up steps providing you have a successful application.For the unanswered questions, we reserved time for a Q&A session at the end of the workshop.
