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. ​ Capital Innovators provides startups with the resources and connections they need to get to the next level. Through proprietary processes and techniques developed and iterated on over the fund's 5 year history, the Accelerator Program has consistently been ranked in the top 5% of programs across the country.

A small group of recently graduated WashU PhD students formed Pro-Arc to commercialize a technology that they successfully licensed from the National Institutes of Health. Pro-Arc Diagnostics is a developing next-generation laboratory test for patients at risk of Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML). PML is caused by the John Cunningham Virus and is responsible for thousands of deaths each year. To date, doctors have had no way to determine which patients were at risk for developing PML. Pro-Arc’s technology is being designed to identify these patients, which may eventually allow doctors to monitor PML risk and safely design treatment courses in response.

Amy Johnson is the Co-Founder of LifeLoop. Around three years ago Amy was selling group health insurance policies when her and husband came to the intersection of family and senior living. A place many people eventually arrive at but never find easy. This personal situation sparked Amy to think, “Can we make this better?” Fast-forward two years through the arduous process of working closely with owners/operators to develop a software product that helps them provide better care and service to their customers. Solving this problem quickly expanded in to building LifeLoop, an operational platform that focuses on lifestyle management and resident engagement that connects families, residents, and staff. In 2016, LifeLoop closed a round of funding, more than doubled revenue and built a strong team. LifeLoop has made an impact in a short period of time in a large market.
