What if we told you you can access enterprise opportunities via Cloud marketplaces?

Global enterprises will spend more than $7 trillion dollars in the next four years as they struggle to modernize, build a global technology foundation for growth, and support simple, secure, and reliable access to data and services, says the IDC.

The big drivers? The usual suspects like cloud initiatives, big data analytics, and mobility. But, IoT is becoming a major investment focus, and so are automation or AI initiatives. Women In Cloud Cloud Accelerator is established to help you represent and access these opportunities via the new sales engine called Cloud Marketplaces powered by Microsoft, Google, RedHat and AWS.

We are inviting you to learn and explore if you are the right fit for the WIC Accelerator Cohort 7.0 starting Late May 2022.

We invite you to join our Cohort 7.0 Open House on May 6th at 10am PST.

If you or anyone you know might be interested in becoming a part of the Cohort 7.0 Accelerator Program this will be a great opportunity to ask questions about the program before you sign up.

We will be discussing the following:

  • Co-Sell Cloud Accelerator with Hyperscalers To Win Enterprise Opportunities

  • Program Outline & What to Expect

  • Opportunities for Access

  • Perfecting Your Solution on a Marketplace

  • Building Co-Sell Go To Market Plan
