Startup Christchurch Membership Programme

Startup Christchurch Membership costs only $50+GST annually per individual and provides benefits such as:

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Credits

Instructions to register for up to US$15,000 worth of AWS credits are as follows:

Visit the AWS Activate webpage to apply.

  1. Use this Organization ID (case-sensitive): 12YEd

  2. Provide your AWS Account ID on the application. Promotional Credits will be added directly to this account, so please double check it - we cannot transfer credits in the future.

  3. Please provide your company domain email address regardless of the email associated with your AWS Account ID. Personal email addresses are likely to be unrecognized and rejected, complicating application processing and billing inquiries.


*Please note that this link and Org ID should not be shared. 

Read the AWS terms and conditions on their web site.
