Techie.com is the Latest Participant in World Accelerator’s Domain-Driven Development Initiative

Techie.com is still in beta and, yet, is already seeing the kind of online traffic returns once reserved for long-established tech sites; prompting World Accelerator to announce its intent to partner with additional project teams.

 
PRLog - Dec. 5, 2012 - SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- New York, NY -- World Accelerator, a new business accelerator with a unique and refined concept for startup activation and development, is pleased to announce the launch of its latest business development project – the tech-related online media destination, Techie.com (http://www.techie.com/ (http://www.techie.com/)). The Internet startup is the undertaking of a project development team from South Bend, Indiana – once noted by Newsweek as one of the “top ten dying cities” in America, and now an up-and-coming high tech hub.

The quick rise of Techie.com, which is already attracting visitors from all corners of the globe, represents the viability of World Accelerator – which differentiates itself from other business accelerators by including a domain-driven element that improves upon traditional and expected business accelerator elements. In committing to outfit its entrepreneurial partners from the get-go, with a prominent, recognizable, and brand-effective domain name that would otherwise be out of reach for most startups, World Accelerator (http://www.worldaccelerator.com/) gives startup teams the edge they need to accelerate their growth.

“Most specifically, World Accelerator enables its startup development teams to completely forego the notion of having to start operating – and start building an audience – from scratch,” said Gary Millin, the founder and CEO of World Accelerator. “While we provide our entrepreneurial partners with traditional accelerator elements, our extended value is in making it possible for startups to begin operating from a sustainable position of strength. Because we’ve created an environment where startups can launch with a prominent and recognizable domain name on Day One, our partners can create real interest and momentum and can clearly identify a customer base – gaining a clear advantage. The emergence of Techie.com, our latest participant, is the most recent example of that and is part of the reason we now wish to add additional project teams.”

Techie.com, the brainchild of a team led by Dan Blacharski – an IT and Public Relations professional with over 25 years of experience, is dedicated to the creation of innovative, enlightening, inspiring, and entertaining content focused on current and future trends in the expanding and influential realm of technology. Still in beta, and having only been ‘live’ for a matter of weeks, Techie.com has already achieved impressive metrics and strong online indicators. Clearly benefiting from World Accelerator’s unique approach to startup business acceleration, Techie.com is already poised to compete with high-traffic, tech-driven destinations that have been years in the making.  

“My team and I obviously feel great about the website we’ve developed – we’ve put quite a lot of time and effort into creating a unique content platform for a high tech community that is growing exponentially with each passing day,” said Blacharski, who – aside from being a high tech enthusiast – is founder of the New Media Marketing/PR firm, Ugly Dog Media, and the co-author of books on Cloud Computing. “My team and I have all the technical understanding you could ask for. But the simple fact is that without the benefit of the Techie.com domain name – provided to us by World Accelerator, along with seed capital and mentorship – we likely wouldn’t be a blip on anyone’s radar yet.”

According to Millin, World Accelerator – which is still in its own beta launch – now, on the heels of the successful launch of Techie.com, seeks to enlist additional entrepreneurial project teams who have an interest and the demonstrated capacity to develop their brands into successful entities. The criteria for acceptance into the program, Millin said, are simple: “a great idea, a solid team, a workable and executable plan, and a feasible strategy for monetizing the brand.”
