Accelerate Platform

My team builds and maintains this system, the backbone of MassChallenge’s startup accelerator programs around the world.

Accelerate in action

Accelerate coordinates thousands of organizations and people throughout the MassChallenge accelerator process – registration, applications, judging, scheduling, cash awards.

It also provides extensive real-time reporting on the process for operational and executive staff.

The platform has supported and connected 10,000 industry experts, 25,000 startups, and 60,000 entrepreneurs.

I led our successful migration of 100,000-line codebase from Python 2 to Python 3, then led our successful migration from Django 1 to Django 2.
