CloudSploit is the leading open source service to perform security configurations monitoring for AWS accounts. To give back to the community, we offer our Basic service for free to fledgling startups.
Connecting with AWS users has been harder than we expected. We don't have the resources to dedicate a person to finding the technical members and convincing them to take the 90 seconds to get set up.
What can we do to scale this good-karma effort?
How about approaching CoFounderLab and offering your service as a Member Benefit, or doing the same with other membership-based organizations that service the start-up community and can help you scale through inclusion?
Promote this to all the VCs you can contact for their portfolio companies. Not a silver bullet but more awareness is better. They are looking to cut the expense and risk profile for their companies. However, target a segment specifically (ecommerce, Saas. whatever) and match them to investors in Crunchbase.
