About Us

Accelerated Global Connections believes that personal connections drive business. We have observed that strong personal connections often start in a casual environment outside of the traditional work day. We recognize there is a need for productive events where people can meet with purpose and begin to do business with people they enjoy hanging out with and maybe even become friends.
