The Haven Startup Accelerator – Empowering Early-Stage Big Data Developers

The Haven Startup Accelerator – Empowering Early-Stage Big Data Developers


As exciting as it is to have so many of today's data-driven market leaders such as Facebook, Etsy, Twitter, Zynga and others leveraging the Haven platform, we also are looking to the next generation of emerging innovators in today’s highly dynamic, Big Data startup ecosystem.


For some time now, we've given away thousands of copies of Vertica Community Edition and signed up multitudes of developers to IDOL On Demand, allowing developers in organizations large and small to use the core components of the Haven stack at no charge - and to engage in an ever-expanding community of users. And with our new Open Source Haven Predictive Analytics offering, we’ve got even more resources available – to everyone and everywhere. 


But as those developers have discovered the power of Haven, many have asked us for more – a real developer license, live support  – yet aren’t established enough to afford full enterprise licenses. Today we have filled that gap with the announcement of the HP Haven Startup Accelerator



What is HP Haven Startup Accelerator? 

The HP Haven Startup Accelerator is a program designed specifically for early-stage companies that are racing to build best-in-class Big Data solutions. It allows startups to tap directly into the power of the HP Haven Big Data platform when building data analytics solutions for their customers. 


HP Haven Startup Accelerator enables qualified, early stage developers special access and pricing to select HP products, tools, and technologies. The program is designed to help inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs to create applications and solutions that accelerate the monetization of big data by leveraging the HP Haven Platform. In addition to select platform access, other benefits include access to training, community support, and the HP Haven Marketplace.

Haven Everywhere 

The Haven Startup Accelerator is part of our broader Haven Everywhere initiative - aimed at enabling and empowering developers in all types of organizations - from the largest global enterprises to the smallest emerging startups, as well as HP's worldwide ecosystem of ISVs, OEMs, MSPs, SIs, and other solutions providers - to leverage the Haven  and the power of Big Data.  


Developers truly are the heroes of the Idea Economy, and we're thrilled to expand our support for both today's - and tomorrow's - best-in-class, next-generation Big Data applications, solutions and services.
