Company acquires India-based development firm All Cloud Works
(Manchester, N.H., May 10) — York IE™, a vertically integrated strategic growth and investment firm, today launched new research and development advisory services to help startups build better products.
The R&D services combine strategic planning and project management with world-class developer talent, ensuring companies are building and executing against a product roadmap that drives the business forward.
“It has been a joy working with the York IE R&D team,” said Ken Rapp, CEO, Blustream. “Not only are we hitting all of our development milestones on time, if not early, but the strategic product input I receive gives me the confidence to know all of those milestones are impactful to my business.”
Additionally, York IE acquired its strategic partner All Cloud Works (ACW) Technologies, a global IT consulting and development firm that has played a significant role in developing York IE’s own strategic growth SaaS platform, Fuel.
The York IE research and development services, led by CTO Mike Veilleux, are designed to provide a new type of dev experience. The services are used by early-stage companies that have limited or no in-house development teams, as well as by more mature companies looking to complement existing teams, add burst capacity or get functional support in areas such as user experience (UX).

We think this new offering is going to help a lot of companies, especially when implemented with some of our other advisory services offerings.”
