Learn more about the inspiration behind the Accelevents platform.
In preparation for an 850 person fundraiser hosted in Boston by Jon and Zach, the two anticipated several shortcomings of existing fundraising systems. Scrambling to provide a memorable night while maximizing the donation total from their fundraiser, the two decided to create their own solution: a mobile and online bidding system. The results were outstanding, with rave reviews and nearly double the anticipated proceeds. After countless inquiries into the technology, the two went on to create Accelevents, a company focused on helping you to create a successful and memorable event.
Story behind Accelevents
Special occasions call for special events. As childhood best friends, we have been hosting memorable events for years — events that bring our families and friends together.
A few years back, a cancer diagnosis in the family made us realize that we could use our event planning talents for greater causes.
So we decided to host a fundraiser for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Gaining more traction than we could have imagined, our 840-person venue sold out weeks in advance. Although we were experts when it came to event logistics, we were relatively inexperienced at raising money.
