Startups don’t succeed in a vacuum, and few entrepreneurs understand this better than RocketSpace founder and CEO Duncan Logan. Founded in early 2011, his San Francisco-based accelerator has already grown to about 130 companies, all of which are focused purely on tech.

But, Duncan and his team aren’t just looking for people with good ideas. They invite only those companies that have already received seed funding to join RocketSpace. Though this exclusivity may bar many startups from the accelerator, it is precisely what makes the RocketSpace community so strong.

In the video below, Duncan Logan discusses why RocketSpace works solely with funded companies, and how RocketSpace plans to continue creating “the ultimate environment for technology companies to thrive in.”

Duncan took part in our SXSW Startup Celebration sponsored by CEA and .CO. Here’s the video.
