playmore games logo

”We have consulted with Accelerando on couple of occasions, both of which were very helpful for us. We got great guidance in building our team into the correct direction and defining our revenue model. We also should mention the help they provided us in attracting angel investors into our direction.

All the advice we got were cut to the point. We got solid concrete tips on the direction we should take as a fresh start-up, one major point being in the revenue model. Word of warning though, Accelerando does get to the root of things and is not for the faint hearted – Nor is building a successful business.”
