SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PBworks, a leading provider of online team collaboration solutions for business and education, today announced the official launch of its "PBworks for Startups" program, starting with startup accelerators TechStars, 500 Startups, Acceleprise, DreamIT, and Lemnos Labs. Under the terms of the program, any startup that enters one of the participating accelerators receives a free, permanent, premium license to the PBworks collaboration suite.
Startups that join the program can claim a perpetual "Starter Pack" license, which can accommodate up to 20 users. The PBworks suite includes a broad set of integrated collaboration features, such as project management, file sharing, wiki collaboration, and social software. The Starter Pack lets a participating startup create an unlimited number of projects, intranets, extranets, knowledge bases, and wikis, and store up to 100 GB of files.
Startups that aren't part of a participating accelerator can still claim most of the benefits of the "PBworks for Startups" program by signing up for PBworks' recently launched project management software, Project Hub (http://www.getprojecthub.com) instead. Project Hub is a truly free alternative to Basecamp that doesn't impose a time-limited trial.
"We discovered that a number of our best customers came from high-growth startups that adopted us when they were still in the proverbial garage," said Jim Groff, CEO of PBworks. "Those startups developed into market leaders or were acquired by market leaders, and became great customers. Working with top accelerators lets us plant a seed at some of the highest-potential startups in the world."
"To succeed, startups have to maximize their productivity," said Collin Gutman, Partner at Acceleprise, the Enterprise Technology Accelerator. "PBworks can help them get more done, and improve collaboration with remote teams."
Startup Accelerators that wish to join the PBworks for Startups programs should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
