Ameren Adds Six Firms To Accelerator Program

Ameren, a St. Louis, Missouri-based energy solutions company, announced plans to add six early-stage companies for the second round of an accelerator program it launched last year with the University of Missouri-St. Louis and Capital Innovators. Two of the six firms are from the St. Louis area; the others are from New York, Texas, Canada and Israel.

The six companies are:

  • Applied Particle Technology of St. Louis, maker of an exposure-monitoring device for employees working in hazardous areas.
  • Jrop, of Toronto, which wants to work with property developers to design infrastructure for ride sharing and autonomous vehicles.
  • Narya Security, of Tel Aviv, developer of a remediation tool for systems infected by ransomware.
  • ResilientGrid, of Austin, Texas, maker of visualization software for grid operators’ control rooms.
  • Ryvit, based in Brentwood, maker of a software platform that integrates many applications commonly used in the construction industry.
  • TouchLight, of Yorktown Heights, N.Y., developer of energy-generating floor tiles that produce electricity from footsteps.

Each company will receive an investment of up to $100,000 along with 12 weeks of mentoring and technical assistance. Ameren said this year’s program attracted more than 300 applications from 49 countries.
