Dreamhost + MuckerLab

We are proud to announce our partnership with the team at Dreamhost. Together, we strive make it easier, faster; and dare we say it, cheaper to turn your ideas into reality.

DreamHost, a global full-service web hosting company, has today announced its partnership with Los Angeles-based start-up accelerator, MuckerLab.  DreamHost will serve as the official web hosting and application hosting provider of MuckerLab for 2012.

MuckerLab is a unique, mentorship-driven organization created to help foster and grow the technology ecosystem within Los Angeles and throughout the greater Southern California area. MuckerLab’s comprehensive three-month program grants participants mentorship, office space, and financing to help get their start-up off the ground and into production. The program concludes with an investor “Demo Day” in which entrepreneurs within the program will present their business plans and early product concepts to investors for additional financing and support.

Each start-up accepted into the MuckerLab program throughout 2012 will receive one year of free web hosting services from DreamHost including fully managed servers and many other services which augment MuckerLab’s own project funding of $21,000. DreamHost is uniquely positioned to support web entrepreneurs as its developer-friendly hosting environment has been repeatedly praised for its use of open-source tools, command-line freedom, and flexibility to grow and support any web application as it grows from start-up to stratosphere.
