INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — Wisconsin-based startup accelerator gener8tor has unveiled the startups participating in its two gBETA fall cohorts in Indianapolis. The gBETA accelerator program will provide coaching and resources for the participants over a seven-week period to help them get their idea or product off the ground and make them competitive for potential investment.

The first gBETA program will be a traditional cohort that is “industry- and vertical-agnostic,” according to the organization. The program will support a variety of startups, including tech and product-based companies.

The cohort includes:

  • Saaslio – allows IT service providers and managed service providers to collect software usage and licensing data.
  • Groundwork – video collaboration software that “empowers contractors to qualify their leads ahead of the site visit, and quickly and easily build trust with their ideal customers.”
  • DocuMentor – allows home health organizations to become and remain compliant, while creating and tracking custom data points relevant to their organization and their clients.
  • Jewelr – software for jewelry stores that provides a streamlined user interface paired with smarter solutions to track inventory, take in repairs, and run the store as a whole.
  • Cafecito – a platform that prevents social isolation for remote workers by providing benefits such as integrated calendar breaks with like-minded people, break reminders and member profiles to create a safe space to connect in a casual environment.

The second program is the gBETA Agbioscience program, which will focus on “innovative technologies or processes” within Indiana’s growing agbiosciences sector. The program is a partnership among gener8tor, AgriNovus Indiana, Beck’s Hybrids and Ag Alumni Seed.

The cohort for the Agbioscience program includes:

  • Plan Bee – provides precision robotics that leverage cloud-based data to help growers in the almond industry better manage and optimize their profit per tree.
  • TopYield Ag – a networking platform that allows producers and growers to connect and engage with experts to receive fast, accurate information from reputable professionals.
  • Gen3Bio – developing a proprietary process uses low-cost enzymes to repurpose algae by converting that algae into specialty chemicals.
  • Qmira – image-recognition software that manages the isolation and identification of disease-causing organisms and substances for pet and livestock management.
  • FloWaste – a food analytics platform that uses proprietary image recognition technology to empower cafeterias and quick-service restaurants to reduce food waste.

The two Indy cohorts will take part in a combined pitch night on November 20.
