Dreamit, the Philadelphia-based business accelerator program, is partnering with Gust, operator of an online support system for entrepreneurs, to provide broader assistance to start-ups.

Under the partnership announced Wednesday, Dreamit companies will have access to Gust's products and to its global network of angel investors and venture capitalists. For Gust, the deal provides its investors a pipeline to graduates of Dreamit's accelerator programs.

Through the new alliance, the pool of companies Dreamit can pull from for its accelerator should grow as start-ups on Gust will be directed to apply to Dreamit's programs, a spokesman said.
