It was inspiring to produce a fantastic gala for Arch Grants! Arch Grants has fanned the flames on the startup culture in St. Louis. Their work has helped make St. Louis as a place where entrepreneurs want to start and grow their businesses. Arch Grants offers startups funding in the form of grants and supports the startups as they remain or transition to downtown St. Louis.
The second annual Arch Grants Gala was a one of a kind celebration of the St. Louis entrepreneurial spirit and community within St. Louis. The event gave tribute to the creative forces that are changing the local landscape and help us build the St. Louis of tomorrow. The festivities took place on Saturday, October 11, 2014, at The Hyatt Regency St. Louis located at the Arch with an evening of networking and learning with a seated dinner, award presentation, and a brief showcase of Arch Grant winning entrepreneurs. At the conclusion of our evening, Arch Grants presented the second Award to David Steward, Chairman and Founder of World Wide Technology, Inc., to honor not only his extraordinary contributions as a prominent global entrepreneur but also the enthusiasm he perpetuates for others in the startup community.
Being a start-up in the City of St. Louis, we know first-hand how important it is to support entrepreneurs and risk takers! Thank you Arch Grants and Susan Werremeyer for allowing us to play a role in this event again this year.
