(Ping! Zine) – Peak Hosting, the industry leader in Operations-as-a-Service, dedicated hosting services, and hybrid cloud computing, today announced a partnership with StartEngine, an LA-based technology accelerator. The Peak Hosting Startup Program will provide startup companies enrolled in StartEngine’s program $12K, a $1,000 per month credit for 12 months of Peak Hosting services, along with 1-on-1 mentoring of each class.
“We are so excited to join in the work StartEngine is doing,” said Jeffrey Papen, founder and CEO of Peak. “There is nothing more important to us than giving back to the technology community by sharing our time, knowledge and expertise. We look forward to watching the next Facebook and Google grow from accelerator and incubator programs.”
StartEngine is more than just another rapid accelerator in Los Angeles. They are an engine to help launch a hub for financing, business infrastructure, community collaboration, and exposure to the best VC’s and angels around.

“StartEngine is excited to have Peak Hosting as one of its partners,” said Howard Marks, co-chair of StartEngine. “They will help our startups scale fast and reliably.”
