Today we are thrilled to announce the companies participating in the 2021 Heritage Group Accelerator powered by Techstars. In our third year for this unique accelerator, we have an extraordinary class of founders partnering with Techstars and The Heritage Group (THG). 

This year’s group, representing diverse geographies and industries within the hard tech and deep tech spaces, will all be convening in Indianapolis. Each company selected for this program aligns with The Heritage Group’s core offerings and will receive countless hours of mentorship, R&D support, and commercialization progress through the Techstars accelerator programming and with THG’s engagement.

“We identified remarkable founders working towards building innovative solutions in some of the world's toughest industries,” said Scott Kraege, Techstars Managing Director. “Our 2021 class of companies align with the most pressing areas of innovation for The Heritage Group including: material science, energy, chemicals, and construction technology. Every person involved in our program - from the founding teams to The Heritage Group’s 5000+ employees to the Techstars team - shares the mission of solving these challenges.”

The Heritage Group is a fourth-generation family-owned business managing a diverse portfolio of more than 30 companies specializing in heavy construction and materials, environmental services, and specialty chemicals. In 2017, THG opened The Center, a state-of-the-art facility located in Indianapolis, IN, that serves as the company’s hub for collaboration and innovation. For the last 3 years, THG has opened The Center's doors and welcomed companies from around the world into their facility to collaborate and grow during the Techstars accelerator.
