Amazon Web Services (AWS) has increased its presence in Peru and, with that its support of local startups. Alex Harasic, who previously founded startup Operatio, is now Business Development Manager, Startups & Venture Capital, for Chile and Peru.
AWS has supported startups with credits previously through the Startup Peru program. Now, it is stepping up support by extending services through local accelerator programs and venture capital funds. This support also includes consulting and advisory services.
Its great to have Alex, startup founder, leading this initiative. He will provide necessary empathy to current founders and play a role in improving access to the tecnological infratstructure that is the backbone on Peru’s startup ecosystem.
