The St. Louis Venture Café Gathering is held every Thursday on the at the @4240 building at 4240 Duncan Ave. #200, St. Louis, MO.  63110 in the Cortex Innovation District from 3:00pm to 8:00pm.  Please visit the Venture Café St. Louis website for more information.

The weekly Venture Café Gathering (Thursdays @ Venture Café) serves as a physical nexus for helping innovators and entrepreneurs find one another and collaborate to bring their dreams to reality. These Thursday evening gatherings provide a space for conversations and scheduled programs to inspire a wide range of attendees from around the world to connect.

Even in this digital world, it’s important to have a physical space. Shared physical spaces provide common meeting ground and a forum for semi-serendipitous encounters that often foster brainstorming and drive creativity.   Meeting in person establishes the trust that’s so crucial to working together, particularly on risky, underfunded projects.
The Venture Café can provide the framework upon which numerous experimental “applications” can be nurtured and launched. Entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists, developers, designers and other members of the St. Louis startup community drop in to chat about what they’re working on.   Attendees are asked to act in line with our Community Credo / Guidelines.

The Café is open to all members of the innovation community who come to contribute and not sell. Stop by to try it out. We also look forward to meeting you.  Venture Café from its very beginnings has welcomed participants without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, military service, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, or disability.  Venture Café reserves the right to refuse admission at our discretion.

As a nonprofit organization that is driven by its mission, we invite you to learn about the creative ways you can support the effort.
