The City of Baltimore is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in its CloudStart programme to develop a range of solutions that will benefit citizens and the city.

 

They include a medical device and public health mobile app to manage asthma conditions, a financial wellness service that increases wealth creation, and a mobile app that scans social networks for indicators of illness so people can avoid areas where they are likely to get sick.

 

What is CloudStart?

 

CloudStart helps organisations that are focused on economic development in a city or region and that are working with governments and non-profits. The programme provides resources to help educate, train and deploy cloud computing services.

 

The Mayor’s Office of Small, Minority and Women Business Development, and the Baltimore Development Corporation’s Emerging Technology Centres (ETC) invited AWS to conduct three information sessions on cloud computing to local small business owners and start-up founders.

 

The Baltimore innovators received an overview of cloud computing and the benefits of the AWS Cloud. They also learned how collaborating with AWS through CloudStart programme will provide them access to AWS Promotional Credits, an online portal of resources to get started using AWS, and technical advice about which services they need.

“AWS Cloud computing has many adaptable uses in the public sector, and we look forward to exploring and mobilising how we use these tools to help entrepreneurs”

“Baltimore has a long history of entrepreneurship and innovative firsts,” said Mayor Catherine E Pugh. “My administration is continuing that tradition by creating technology-centered solutions to enhance government services.

 

“AWS Cloud computing has many adaptable uses in the public sector, and we look forward to exploring and mobilising how we use these tools to help entrepreneurs and residents access opportunities and resources in Baltimore.”

 

The ETC’s 13-week tech accelerator programme, AccelerateBaltimore, will include CloudStart benefits for the cohort that starts this month.

 

After each session, start-up founders were able to think big about how the technology resources they will receive can help them improve their customer engagement, operational efficiency, and business effectiveness.
