In April of 2008 ITEN was founded to be the catalyst for the St. Louis region’s tech startup ecosystem. We validate and accelerate scalable tech startups with programs for rapid product development, talent acquisition, essential networking, and access to funding, including curating introductions to corporate partners.
Throughout our history we have supported over 800 startup ventures and worked with more than 80 Entrepreneurs in Residence and volunteer mentors, and five corporate partners to support the commercialization of tech innovation.
Taking neither payment nor equity for our services, we rely on the generosity of our sponsors and donors which includes those positively impacted by our efforts. We are grateful to our past supporters and would greatly appreciate your support to carry our mission forward!
