Detailed Description

Update

i/o ventures is an early stage startup program that focuses heavily on its mentorship.

They work closely with founders from product launch through the next stage of company development, sharing what has proven to work for product scaling, revenue growth and fund raising.

Their partners and mentors have started and ran some of the top internet companies. They want you to take advantage of their experience leading teams, building great products, raising money, negotiating mergers and acquisitions, scaling infrastructure, all with the hope that you dramatically improve your execution and time-to-market (and won't repeat their mistakes!)

They take pride in their roles both as founders and operators. Everyone of us has recently or is currently running a technology company. They understand the most common challenges that all entrepreneurs face.

They're based out of a funky space in the mission that they invite both portfolio companies and people looking to start a company to come hang out at.
