World Media Group, a company that specializes in helping to transform recognizable domain names in businesses, has launched a new business accelerator.
Led by Gary Millin, CEO, World Accelerator uses a new concept that combines traditional accelerator elements, such as seed capital and mentorship and the opportunity to build a business on the foundation of a brandable domain name with access to a readily identifiable constituency of customers. Brands available via the accelerator include alumni.com, comic.com, diploma.com, fight.com, fact.com, FAQ.com, and Japan.com.
Since 2007, World Media Group has developed numerous domain names into businesses, including Doctor.com, Lawyer.com, India.com, USA.com, Popstar.com, London.com, Paris.com, and Madrid.com.
World Accelerator is currently launching a beta site in order to generate interest and identify prospective participants for developing some of its 1,000-plus internet domains.
The accelerator is headquartered in New York City and has mentors from across the US, Europe and Asia.
