It took me by surprise recently when LinkedIn told me I’d been at
Accelerando for two years. It really has been that long since I
decided I was done working at somebody else’s dream job, and ventured
into the great self-employed adventure where a small-business owner
can work whichever 24 hours a day they choose.
After a period of working as a distributed team and from various
coworking spaces, we have now been in our Sumner Park lab for 15
Months, and grown to a staff of six (plus a number of specialists who
work with us at need).
Our lab and event space gives us the resources to construct almost
anything, from a simple sensor to an autonomous robot. We chose the
name Accelerando to highlight agility; we aim to get your project
from a standing start to full speed as fast as possible. To do this
we manaintain the resources to assemble a proof-of-concept IoT device in
as little as a day, without waiting for part shipping. Once we attain
rapid validation from a proof-of-concept, we incorporate lessons
learned then design and deliver professional prototypes, and if you
wish we can take you all the way to volume manufacturing.
Let’s look at some of the things we’ve done in the last year.
