Setting up Internet of Things (IoT) business models is a challenging tasks which leads to dramatic numbers of failures. To support both corporates and startups, business accelerators gain increasing popularity. However, most of such efforts have several restrictions such as limited capabilities, networks or expertise. To overcome these deficiencies we propose the Hybrid Intelligence Accelerator as a novel service system to support the design process of IoT business models through connecting multiple actors via an online platform and combining the idiosyncratic benefits of collective and artificial intelligence. In the context of a design science research approach we developed an initial prototype version of the Hybrid Intelligence Accelerator and provide insights in the procedures as well as tentative design principles.
