Read about Capital Innovators on SPN.
The Capital Innovators® startup accelerator program was created by Judy Sindecuse in 2010. After extensive research on entrepreneurship in St. Louis, Judy concluded that the region’s early stage IT companies required better access to funding and mentorship in order to flourish. St. Louis already possessed a high quality talent pool, world class universities, and an incredible roster of global corporations. By bringing these resources together, she founded the region’s first seed accelerator program, Capital Innovators.
