Thinking tech? Think St. Louis.
St. Louis is a top city for technology startups? You bet it is, and we’re not the only ones who think so. Here are some of the top reasons that tech writers at Kiplinger, Monster and CBS have sounded off for St. Louis:
- Startups, Start Me Up: St. Louis supports tech startups with Mick Jagger-style swagger. By partnering with the Kauffman Foundation’s global Startup Weekend, St. Louis joined the ranks of other innovation-centric cities when it hosted the St. Louis Startup Weekend, an intense 54 hour event in January that drew in teams of developers, designers and de-mystifiers - all with the goal of launching their own startups.
- Money, Honey: Cash is king, and St. Louis is handing out the crowns. The city’s gained national press coverage for the new Arch Grants, an annual national competition offering invaluable cash and counsel for startups who will base themselves in downtown St. Louis. The focus of Arch Grants is on fostering ingenuity and innovation, so naturally, ten of the 15 winners are tech-centric.
- We’ve Got The Power: Ameren UE's underground power grid with multiple feeds and AT&T’s massive fiber optic network make downtown St. Louis ideal for power-needy, data-heavy tech companies.
- T-Rex, Getting It On: TEC @ Railroad Exchange Building, a.k.a. T-Rex, is “a low-cost, flexible-lease space with plastic plants and Internet, oriented to the nascent IT startup entrepreneur.” The space is sponsored by three local non-profits. Feel the love.
