Longlive Makes it to AWS Expand

Longlive has been selected as one of the 30 EMEA startups to be part of “AWS Expand” programme

MATTER, the premier healthcare incubator and innovation hub, has launched a new incubation program in collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) called AWS Expand. The dual-track program will prepare Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) based startups to enter and understand the intricacies of the U.S. healthcare market through education, mentorship and exposure to potential customers and partners.

“AWS is committed to helping healthcare startups across the globe find new opportunities and scale their businesses, and that often means expanding beyond their own borders,” said Jared Saul, MD, global lead for healthcare & life sciences startups and investors at AWS. “We look forward to working with MATTER to give EMEA-based companies the tools, knowledge and connections to successfully enter the U.S. market.”

“The U.S. healthcare industry is different from other local healthcare markets. Its nuances and intricacies require a distinct knowledge base,” said Steven Collens, CEO of MATTER. “As a global healthcare incubator headquartered in Chicago, MATTER will help these startups adopt the right lens that will be critical to their success in the U.S.”

“I believe that AWS Expand will be a crucial incubator programme for us. We consider ourselves fortunate. This couldn’t have come at a better time as we gear ourselves to launch Longlive to the USA market. Having access to great experts in the areas of AI, Regulatory and other domains will mean that we have all bases covered as we launch. Another important aspect of the programme is that startups will benefit from Matter & Amazon’s network of investors and our potential customers,” said Hammad Ahmed, Founder & CEO of Longlive.
