on

  • RealCo, a tech startup accelerator, will launch in San Antonio this February, housed at Geekdom
  • The mentorship-driven program provides up to $125,000 in funding to participants if goals are met, a cadence of accountability meetings, mentors, education, speakers, co-working space at Geekdom, and access to a network of investors
  • RealCo will attract local businesses, as well as those from out of the city and state
  • The launch party is scheduled for Monday, February 20, at the Geekdom Event Centre

RealCo, the startup accelerator for business-to-business companies, is set to launch, with its headquarters based in San Antonio’s Geekdom in the heart of the tech district downtown. It is a 15-month program that surrounds early stage startups with access to a network, capital, resources, and mentors that will help them build a sustainable business.

The mentorship-driven program provides up to $125,000 in funding to participants if goals are met, a cadence of accountability meetings, mentors, education, speakers, co-working space at Geekdom, and access to a network of investors. The focus of the accelerator will support companies in building business and preparing to be investor-ready.

The RealCo team is comprised of experienced techies and leaders including Michael Girdley (CEO and co-founder of Codeup, and co-founder of Geekdom Fund), Teresa Evans, PhD. (UTHSCSA Lecturer II in the Department of Pharmacology and Director of Workforce Career and Development, co-founder of San Antonio Science, and associate director of the San Antonio Angel Network), and Chris Saum (co-founder and director of business development of MUD Geochemical).

“RealCo will work immediately to support entrepreneurs and collaborate with community leaders,” said Saum, RealCo partner. “We’re looking for early stage Internet- and tech-related seed startups with high growth business models, large target markets, and business-to-business direct sales models.”

Startup participants of the program will move at different paces, so RealCo will be flexible with how long they will give companies to graduate from one level to the next. More advanced businesses can start at later levels. Therefore, there will be quarterly acceptance into the accelerator program, with the expectation that there will be up to ten businesses in the program during any given quarter.

The accelerator is currently accepting applications for the program. It is also seeking business or community leaders interested in mentoring in the program. RealCo will attract local businesses, as well as those from out of the city and state. The launch party is scheduled for Monday, February 20, at the Geekdom Event Centre.

Melissa is an also avid equestrian. She began riding at the age of 3 and received formal instruction at Fort Sam Houston’s riding academy. She rode Hunter/Jumper Pentathlon horses for 7 years before “earning” the privilege of having her own horse.
