Promising Cloud Technology Start-up Joins Premier Accelerator Program.
McLean, Virginia (May 31, 2013) Today Acceleprise, a DC-based accelerator program focusing on enterprise software startups, named DivvyCloud part of its third class of companies. Acceleprise will provide a $30,000 seed investment while also contributing workspace, access to entrepreneurial advisors, educational programs designed to speed startup development, and connections to potential investors. Acceleprise leverages partnerships with several established companies in the cloud space to bring forward additional networking opportunities. DivvyCloud is part of a class of nine companies that will be joining Acceleprise for this four month acceleration program.
“We’re excited to have been selected for this incredible opportunity,” said DivvyCloud co-founder and CEO Brian Johnson. “Acceleprise has a well-earned reputation for excellence, and will provide us a place to learn and grow as a company.”
DivvyCloud software is built from the ground up to support multiple public and private cloud technologies through a single pane of glass, effectively simplifying what will become an increasingly fragmented, costly and risky cloud footprint for many organizations. The platform will make it easy to track resources across projects, manage security groups, and automate the lifecycle management of cloud resources. It will also include robust analytical tools to facilitate decision-making and provide recommendations for savings and enhanced security.
DivvyCloud’s platform currently includes integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) – the leading public cloud provider – and the team expects to steadily grow the list of public and private clouds with which it is compatible.
