A Madison startup is among seven early-stage companies across the U.S. selected for the St. Louis-based Capital Innovators spring accelerator cohort.

OmniValley, founded in 2018, has created an online platform aimed at helping entrepreneurs, investors, accelerator operators and service providers connect digitally across both large and small markets. As part of the accelerator, the startup will receive $50,000 in seed funding, as well as access to mentoring, networking and coworking space.
