Huntsville organization partners with gener8tor for program

OmniVis, which produces a handheld device to detect foodborne pathogens, is one of five companies that are part of the HudsonAlpha AgTech Accelerator.

Five startups have been selected for the spring 2023 cohort of the HudsonAlpha AgTech Accelerator.

The Huntsville-based HudsonAlpha partners with gener8tor for the program, and this is its second group. The 12-week accelerator will invest $100,000 in the startups that are part of the agriculture technology industry.

“It’s no secret that many of our world’s most pressing challenges are in the agriculture, food security and sustainability sectors,” said Alex Cate, director of entrepreneurship programs for HudsonAlpha. “The companies participating in this cohort are directly addressing these global challenges with unique technologies and solutions and are aligned with HudsonAlpha’s mission to improve life through discovery and application of breakthrough technologies.”
