The History of Accelebrate

Providing IT training is what Steve has wanted to do since his late teens. In 1990, he had the good fortune to be placed in the first dormitory at Stanford University that had Internet connections in the dorm rooms. Steve's idea of a good time in college was teaching other students how to use email, FTP, and even Gopher (a precursor to the World Wide Web), as well as putting the University's Berlin, Germany campus online during his time living there.

After graduation, Steve worked for a year at a software company before joining an IT training firm in Washington, DC as its second employee in 1995. Over the following 7 years, he progressed to Vice President and then President of the firm, which grew to 7 US locations before the bursting of the Dotcom Bubble and 9/11 sharply reversed its fortunes.

In 2002, Steve founded Accelebrate with one laptop and himself as the sole instructor. In the following 20 years, Accelebrate has grown to consistently deliver more than 1,000 days/year of private training for clients, with classes delivered in-person and online for attendees from every US state, every Canadian province, and more than 30 countries.
