For more than ten months, we’ve been working on our platform to help businesses fast and easy hire software engineers. Building a platform is hard as you have to satisfy the needs of both sides, especially when you don’t have enough resources at early stages.
That’s why we continuously are searching for specific programs, discounts and special offers that are aimed at helping startups to grow fast and scale rapidly. Some of them we found useful indeed. For example, only on AWS, we saved $5,000. So we collected all such startup programs available online that we were considering for our own startup. Now we want to share this list with you.
Hope it will be helpful for your startup endeavour!
