Save 15% on Instant Deploy Bare-Metal Servers in 26 Global Markets with Coupon Code: EdgeSave

We try to work with local incubators and acceleration groups to help start-ups get their online infrastructure going on a shoestring budget. We were a start-up once and we know what it is like to have dreams but no capital.   Not too long ago I attended a Tampa Bay Wave event and met with several of the start-ups going through the Wave’s program.  When I mentioned to the aspiring entrepreneurs we could possibly provide them with free dedicated servers they were obviously very receptive.  When I asked them for a business card so I could get back to them the following day, they told me they had none to give because they couldn’t afford business cards yet.  This one conversation punctuates how important and how much value a little help at the early stages of a company can truly be.  As it turns out they didn’t have business cards but they were paying RackSpace about $1000 per month for servers.  By Hivelocity providing them the same services free for a full year a business card budget…and then some, was born. 

Most recently we worked with Tampa Bay Caregiver Accelerator and offered the prize of 1 year free bare-metal, colocation or cloud hosting to the winner of their Pitch Program. We look forward to hearing from the winner and helping get their www infrastructure going.
