Why St. Louis?

St. Louis has been blossoming with startup spirit.

Not only is Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey from St. Louis, but the city has been growing and facillitating its production of entrpreneurs and startups.

Particularly,  a new accelerator program called Capital Innovators was recetly launched by Judy Sindecuse and Hal Gentry. The accelerator offers $50,000 of funding to five companies and a 12 week mentorship program for startups. We’re looking forward to covering the incubator and the new startups that will be coming out of it.

St. Louis has a lot of interesting start-up activity occurring and as it continues to grow, we’re thrilled to cover the exciting news that will be coming out of the Gateway City.
