“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” – Seneca

2019 is upon us. Everyone here at Acceleration Partners is excited and ambitious about all the new beginnings ahead. But we also value the significance of looking back and reflecting on what the previous year held, as that’s the foundation upon which we’re able to achieve bigger and better things for our company, our clients, our partners and ourselves.

With that, here’s a look back on 2018 happenings here at Acceleration Partners:

We also worked with a number of Advertisers to review their current strategies and help them build better affiliate marketing programmes.


Although we’ve only recently established headquarters in Singapore and hired Janice Tan-David as our APAC Managing Director, we’ve already realised notable successes in the APAC region in 2018, including bringing on new team members and officially offering extensive consultative services to clients around the globe.


We grew and strengthened our relationship with leading industry partners, including:
