Posted Google’s new 360-degree short ‘Pearl’ puts you in the passenger seat with dad and daughter Paul Bragiel, the venture capitalist who made an unsuccessful run at qualifying for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics as lone member of the Colombian cross-country ski team, is forming a new, San Francisco-based venture firm with his brother, Dan. According to an SEC filing , they are targeting $10 million for their debut effort. The outfit is called Bragiel Brothers . We’ve reached out to Paul Bragiel and will update this post if/when we learn more. The CEO of brothers previously cofounded I/O Ventures , a six-year-old seed fund based in San Francisco. Paul has also served as cofounder and advisor to two farther-flung venture funds: Golden Gate Ventures, which focuses on opportunities in Southeast Asia , and Nairobi-based Savannah Fund, established four years ago to zero in on founders in Sub-Saharan Africa. A third I/O Ventures cofounder, Ashwin Navin, meanwhile is CEO of Samba TV , a publisher of smart TV apps and analysis. Aber Whitcomb, a cofounder and the CTO of Social Gaming Network, also lists himself as an early and continuing partner at I/O Ventures. I/O Ventures hasn’t been terribly active in recent years (judging by CrunchBase data , anyway), but it has made some newer bets, including on Open Listings , a two-year-old, L.A.-based self-service platform for individuals wanting to buy a home without an agent. 0
