Out of the six startup companies that went through the i/o ventures 3 month accelerator programe, two got acquired and the other four went on to get funding of between $500 and $1m.

This is a great result for founder Paul Bragiel and the i/o team whose program invests $25,000 into every startup on the programe. i/o is located in the Mission District and incorporates a coffee shop where startups come to build their products.

In the video Paul tells me why i/o is different from other accelerator programs and what startups have to do to apply.
