Chris Motley will be the keynote speaker at Capital Innovators’ Demo Day 2018 on Tuesday, May 15 at The Pageant. He is founder and CEO of Better Weekdays, a venture-backed startup that helps university recruiters access diverse student talent and is a portfolio company of Capital Innovators.

Capital Innovators, founded in 2010 by Judy Sindecuse, is a St. Louis-based venture fund that runs a 12-week accelerator program.

At Demo Day 2018, Capital Innovators will showcase 12 of its latest investments, with startups from up-and-coming international startup cities like Mexico City, Singapore and Denver, as well as already developed hubs like San Francisco and New York City.  

Their products range from IoT, AI, SaaS, Marketplaces, CPG, Machine Learning, and Blockchain. Of the 12 companies, five have a female founder on the executive team.

Capital Innovators selected these 12 companies out of over 860 applications from 56 countries and 35 states. During the three-month program in Saint Louis, the companies validate their business models, test new strategies for growth, and hone their pitch for follow-on investment, amongst other business development activities.

Demo Day in St. Louis provides an opportunity for each startup founder to tell their story, share their traction to date, and illustrate the ultimate visions for their company.
