Prosper Women Entrepreneurs, a St. Louis-based organization focused on identifying and advancing women-led companies, has selected five companies for its Prosper Capital Fall Startup Accelerator Program, three of which are health IT companies.

Each of the companies selected will receive a $50,000 capital investment, as well as access to mentorship and resources to help with continued growth.

The health IT companies selected include:

•    EDIS Solutions (St. Louis). The company, led by co-founder and CEO Nannette Musgrave, gathers and presents pharmaceutical data for support in strategic planning.
•    Janus Choice (Rockford, Ill.). Janus is led by CEO Alexandra Goodwin. The company offers solutions to improve the hospital discharge process.
•    SkyMedicus (Atlanta). CEO and co-founder Amy Holcomb leads SkyMedicus, which provides domestic and international medical tourism resources.

PWE also selected Bandura Systems (an enterprise and government network cybersecurity solutions company) and (a stand-alone, transparent LCD developer) for the fall program.

"Our startup accelerator is unique not only because we focus solely on women-led businesses; as far as we know, there is also no other accelerator that provides follow-on funding for selected companies," said Mary Jo Gorman, MD, lead managing partner of Prosper Capital and founder and former CEO of Advanced ICU Care.
