There is a focus on funding and opportunities that will help founders get to their next milestone. This can include grants, accelerator applications, hackathons, etc. Your role will consist of:

  • Finding and aggregating all opportunities for St Louis entrepreneurs each week
  • Update the weekly blog post/newsletter with all current opportunities
  • Update our Startup Directory where opportunities can live and be searched/discovered online
  • Work with executive director and operations coordinator to discover which opportunities are most helpful to our community

Qualifications: 

  • Active in the startup community. You attend events, participate in hackathons, or other startup-related activities
  • Process-oriented i.e., enjoys creating workflows/processes for efficient operations
