You'll be looking for a door with a big painting of an eye on it, the space is upstairs in their building, just follow the signs! If you have any issues finding the place, please shout out on twitter @startlouis and we'll send someone around. Parking is available in the rear, on the street, and next door. 

Time for the schedule!

We'll start things off, as always, with a little bit of pitch practice. Same format as last time, 30 seconds to pitch yourself, your company, or what resources you're looking for. We're going to keep being strict with the time so be prepared!


Then we'll have Marc Bowers talking about how, when faced with some difficult circumstances, he pivoted to a viable re-launch, and has been experimenting with some non-traditional investor relationships. 

Marc also helped found Product Camp STL, which is a product development 'unconference' sponsored by some of the biggest tech companies in STL, ProductCamp is on March 29 all day. It's free to attend to claim your place ASAP!

Next up we'll have Al Ludwig, Senior Associate; Lewis, Rice, Fingersh, talking about business entity formation. He'll go in-depth on some of the most common questions you might have around different forms of business, and if time allows, he'll talk about intellectual property protection (Patents, Trademarks, Software Licensing).

Again, we'll be at the Nebula Coworking space on Jefferson and Cherokee. Please reach out if you have any trouble finding the place!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
