The eFactory on Thursday announced the four Springfield startups that will make up the third cohort of its accelerator program.
The 12-week program begins May 14, and the four companies will spend the time in training, workshops and meetings, among other things.
The startups will receive $30,000 capital investment in exchange for 8 percent equity.
The four startups include:
- Easy Access Hunts – A web-based service connecting hunters and private landowners
- FiTbyPhase – A fitness app that provides users with training programs and nutritional guidance
- Gracious – A cloud-based app that allows worship leaders to digitally organize sermon notes
- SelectSitter – A service that utilizes social media to help families find quality child care
The eFactory, which is based in Springfield and is affiliated with Missouri State University, is a center for entrepreneurship and startups. Its accelerator program began in 2017, and nine companies have graduated from the program.
