In a groundbreaking move to foster innovation in the Indian spacetech sector, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has launched its first-ever space accelerator program in India. AWS has committed $100K to support 24 promising spacetech startups through a comprehensive 14-week accelerator program. This initiative aims to empower early and growth-stage startups by providing them with technical expertise, specialized AWS training, and mentorship from industry experts.

Program Overview

The AWS Space Accelerator program is designed to nurture and accelerate the growth of spacetech startups by offering:

  • Dedicated Technical Expertise: Startups will receive tailored technical guidance to build secure and scalable solutions.
  • Specialized AWS Training: Access to advanced AWS technologies in areas like GenAI, machine learning, and data analytics.
  • Mentoring: Insights and advice from space domain and technical experts.
