CARY — A pair of successful local entrepreneurs are betting that they can help other technology companies succeed too. Mike and Will Shook are behind Accelerence, a new venture focused on helping emerging information technology companies whose sales have stalled.
Technology veterans and entrepreneurs Will and Mike Shook have launched a new company that they believe will help accelerate the growth of startups. It's called Accelerence. In the Triangle, the Shooks are perhaps best known for their roles in growing and later selling Cary-based Strategic Technologies, an information technology services firm that grew into data hosting.
Brothers Mike and Will Shook have learned a lot since merging their $110 million company, Strategic Technologies, with Consonus in 2007. They’ve learned “what not to do,” and it’s that knowledge that is pushing them forward in their new consulting venture, Accelerence.
