The efactory, a Missouri State University-based business development center, on Wednesday announced the four businesses that will make up the newest cohort of its startup accelerator.
AgButler, MiddleCoast Solutions, Tipper Mobile and Vendux were all named to Accelerator Cohort 5. They will be formally introduced to the public Aug. 3 with a “Meet the Founders” event.

Tipper Mobile makes a payment app that’s integrated into social media and aims to help smaller content creators make money.
Vendux is a recruiting firm that works to connect experienced sales executives with companies struggling to fill that void on an interim or fractional basis.
The companies that have been named to the accelerator cohort receive a $30,000 investment as well as discounted business tools, mentorship and other perks in exchange for 8% equity.
