Accentus hits funding, sales milestones
If the name Accentus sounds familiar, that’s because it probably is.
The Hanover-based firm was the winner earlier this year in the initial Start Up New Hampshire business plan competition, garnering a $40,000 prize for its efforts.

The company also recently registered its first product revenue in June with customers Credit Suisse First Boston and Barclays Capital. The firm now says it counts seven of the top 10 Wall Street firms as its customers or product development partners.
