Support Venture Cafe St Louis’ Innovation Community
Venture Café St. Louis is dedicated to connecting people to make things happen. Entrepreneurship is an important part of our economy and St. Louis' future. Venture Café is creating new ways to better connect entrepreneurs to the resources they need, increase opportunity and access, and provide targeted learning opportunities hosted by leaders in our innovation community. Your support helps early-stage entrepreneurs to keep growing and aspiring entrepreneurs the tools to launch.
Last year, Venture Café Thursdays and 39 North supported more than 21,000 aspiring or established entrepreneurs, held 50+ events, and offered more than 3,000 hours of free education. Innovation Hall gave more than $739,000 worth of donated space to nonprofits and early-stage entrepreneurs. We also offer free space and support for educators who are launching new initiatives to solve our educational system's most entrenched challenges. We supported the launch of 16 new initiatives including a restorative justice program to a literacy program that partnered with Disney/Marvel.
Help raise the $250,000 we need to continue supporting innovators engaging with the critical issues facing our rapidly changing society.
