NephoScale’s H/F Kick Start Program provides start-up companies accepted to Hackers/Founders’ Co-op start-up incubator program with up to $1,000 per month credit for cloud infrastructure services for 12 months.

November 14, 2012 – San Jose, CA – NephoScale, creator of the NephOS next generation cloud infrastructure services platform, is helping start-ups design and automate their cloud infrastructure environments. This allows them to focus solely on improving their applications and building their business. Entrepreneurs accepted to the Hackers/Founders incubator program benefit greatly from working closely with NephoScale’s systems engineers and developers for the 12 months duration of the NephoScale Kick Start program and receive a $1,000 per month credit for the services.

“We at Hackers/Founders are committed to partnering with vendors and service providers that provide the most benefit to our members and incubator companies. NephoScale has turned out be a perfect partner with its next generation cloud infrastructure platform, high touch onboarding and technical support, and deep understanding of optimizing application performance in the cloud.” said Jonathan Nelson, Cofounder at Hackers/Founders.

“Working closely with tech start-ups that live by the same creed as us is not only fun, it also makes for a great business relationship.” said Telemachus Luu, Cofounder and CTO of NephoScale. “We have much in common with the H/F start-ups we work with because many of them apply agile methodologies in the development of their software applications, and at the same time, we’re applying those same principles such as agile development, continuous integration, and DevOps engineering in the development of our own software. We built both CloudScript and our NephOS IaaS cloud services platform with a focus on providing rapid, reliable, and predictable deployment & management of cloud infrastructure. As a result, our cloud services platform offers advantages over our competitors in that it enables our customers to drastically speed up their feature development flow while also making their application deployments more predictable and reliable”, said Luu.

Hackers/Founders (H/F), based in San Jose, CA, is a San Francisco Bay Area meetup group and incubator program that creates a unique and vibrant community of tech entrepreneurs. The H/F incubator program provides participating start-ups access to marketing, PR, legal, HR, and business services, as well as entrepreneurial collaboration and exposure to venture capitalists and angel investors.

“We are very supportive of and involved with the important work that Hackers / Founders is doing for the San Francisco bay area start-up community,” Bruce Templeton, Cofounder and CEO of NephoScale said, “The Hackers and Founders community is now 8,000 strong and growing fast, and we are delighted to be supporters of this thriving group.”
H/F encourages early-stage companies focused on web, social, mobile, ecommerce, gaming, or biotech to apply for the program, which completes four cycles per year, and is designed to help start-ups build a solid foundation for success in only 90 days. It offers a team of mentors to guide entrepreneurs, and provides access to many channels and opportunities to attain seed funding.
The six start-ups admitted to the fall 2012 H/F Co-op incubator class include 41ads a contextual web advertising service, Boutiika a fashion boutique finder service, EventChocolate an email/personal profile analysis service, Fandrop and online social and content discovery hub, INTRO Labs social based business networking portal, and BusyFlow a cloud app collaboration service.
