ST. LOUIS, MO – In response to the growing number of start-up accelerators headquartered at the Cortex innovation district and surrounding areas, a local organization has founded the St. Louis region’s first start-up decelerator. Citizens for the Preservation of Private Capital (CPPC) will begin accepting applications to its fall 2016 inaugural cohort later this month.
Remarked CPPC founder Skip Willoughby, “We will target the most questionable and overcapitalized start-ups, but we also hope to accept a number of accelerators. In particular, we hope to attract interest from the growing legion of accelerators targeting the bow tie, singing telegram, canine psychiatry, seashell necklace, stapler aficionado and provel cheese markets.”
