  • Blinder (Auckland, New Zealand) — A call scheduling and recording tool
  • INFLCR (Birmingham, Alabama) — Content marketing software for sports organizations
  • Outdoor Access (Richmond, Virginia) — A marketplace for booking recreation destinations, like airbnb for outdoor venues
  • Rival.ai (Toronto, Canada) — A company using artificial intelligence to produce scouting reports

The group brings Stadia’s total portfolio to 30 companies. Although Stadia is based in St. Louis, the fall cohort will participate in the 14-week program in Frisco, Texas.
