Accelerate Platform

I’m Principal Software Engineer on the team that 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.
