Founders and siblings Anand and Gitanjali Venkatrao established the company in January 2012 with the goal of creating a premium, American made denim line that serves as both stylish and practical for the modern man.
"Our goal is to disrupt a stagnant industry by making it easier to 'wear' your Smartphone, as well as keeping everything from design to the manufacturing of the jeans within the United States." – Anand Venkatrao , CEO
With a background in technology, Anand never considered a career in fashion until the idea of the I/O Pocket came to him after a near car accident on Interstate-35. He then knew he could do something new in the fashion industry, and the concept of I/O Denim quickly developed.
Gitanjali went to Baylor University and received a BA in Fashion Merchandising and Entrepreneurship. After graduation, she moved to Los Angeles to attend the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, FIDM, for a graduate program.
