What is Accelerator.IO?

It’s a new social network for entrepreneurs with productivity tools based on Lean Startup methodology. Accelerator.IO is a niche social network similar to dribbble, which is for designers, and Forrst, which is for developers. Main focus for us, team of Accelerator.IO, is to provide valuable tools and content for startupers, founders, hackers and hustlers by connecting them with mentors, investors and most importantly fellow entrepreneurs across the globe. It is important to state that Accelerator.IO is not a competitor to AngelList but rather a complimentary tool. In fact, we leverage AngelList API to gather entrepreneurial information about users such as company name and website URL. In a sense Accelerator.IO is a global online co-working space where smart and bright minds collaborate and learn from each others failures and successes.
