Through AWS, startups will gain an opportunity to experiment frequently and optimize business performance, while reducing technology costs.
Amier Al Awadhi, Acting Director of Masdar City Free Zone, said: “Masdar City’s accelerator programs are committed to facilitating the growth of entrepreneurs in alignment with the UAE leadership’s strategic vision.
