About Us

Hi! 👋 We're Francois and Tony. We're good friends and the co-founders of CloudForecast.

We met years ago as early employees at a Y Combinator startup that had a successful exit. We saw a huge need for lean, focused reporting within AWS and we decided to band together and provide the perfect solution we wished we had while managing our own AWS spend.

We love being relentlessly helpful and building relationships with anyone that signs up. If you have any questions (or just want to say hi) reach out. 

Our Mission And Vision

We're building a different type of AWS cost management SaaS, one that focuses on our customers. At CloudForecast, we believe that every team in an organization should have access to the AWS cost management tool without breaking the budget.

We want your company to save money and we want to empower you to have all the tools you need to make informed decisions. AWS cost management and staying within your budget shouldn't be hard, overcomplicated or expensive. We're building features to make cloud cost savings effortless for everyone in your organization.
