Gener8tor has raised three funds for its Wisconsin programs over the past several years. The most recent, gener8tor Fund III LLC, totaled $1.5 million. The company generally uses these funding rounds to finance the operations and investments of its gener8tor accelerator program.

In return for an equity stake, the nationally-ranked accelerator invests up to $140,000 in each of the high-growth startups that participate in its 12-week gener8tor program.

Gener8tor expanded to Minneapolis in 2016 to offer both its core gener8tor accelerator and its gBETA pre-seed program in that market. And last month, the company launched its first medical technology-focused program, gBETA Medtech, in Minneapolis.
