St Louis-based fintech accelerator SixThirty is inviting applications for its Autumn cohort, where later seed-stage startups can draw down up to $100,000 in funding and participate in a 14-week mentorship and pipeline-building programme.
Established in 2013, SixThirty has so far made 18 investments in 15 companies, including two international startups, and handed out over $1 million in funding.
Backed by the St. Louis Regional Chamber and venture capital firm Cultivation Capital, the SixThirty programme is open to businesses with a working product and focuses on sales and pipeline management, marketing, use of social media, and fundraising.
For its Spring cohort, SixThirty fielded applications from over 100 startups, before whittling down the numbers to a shortlist of six. Each company selected receives up to a $100,000 investment in exchange for a negotiated percentage of equity, usually between three percent and ten percent.
Applications for the Autumn programme close on 10 July.
