Amazon Bootcamp: Ireland

During our two-day bootcamp, benefit from sessions on how to get your business online, sell your products on the Amazon stores, send your products to customers, export your products, scale operations and master social media. You'll also benefit from Amazon specific training and advice from a dedicated group of experts and advisers.

Amazon Bootcamp: Ireland has been created in partnership with Enterprise Ireland, Enterprise Nation, and the Local Enterprise Office. The virtual event will feature interviews, panel discussions and interactive presentation sessions with Amazon leaders who will provide hands-on, practical advice of how to sell on Amazon, together with external experts and Irish industry leaders such as Pamela Laird, former contestant on The Apprentice, who is now a successful Amazon entrepreneur with her brand Moxi Loves.
