Nationally ranked startup accelerator Gener8tor has announced which five local companies will receive intensive and individualized coaching as part of the gBeta Indy program launched earlier this year.

Fifty-eight companies applied for the fall class—six more than for spring.

The local companies that will be a part of the fall class are:
-Encamp, which automates hazardous-material-inventory reporting.
-Little Nugget, which organizes digital photo albums.
-SmileML, which makes software that annotates user emotions in interview videos and aggregates insights into a dashboard.
-The Bee Corp., which applies data analytics to beehives to help growers with pollination.
-ThickStat, which has a natural-language voice platform that delivers actionable business insights in real time.

GBeta is a free accelerator for early-stage companies with local roots. Participants receive coaching plus access to Gener8tor’s national network of mentors, customers, corporate partners and investors. FairWinds Advisors is pleased to be a mentor for the program.
