What we're about

============================================================

StartLouis' Vision as an “ESO”, (Entrepreneur Support Organization) is to be a “Starting Point” (“StartLouis”) for access to information and resources for the “Greater St. Louis Area Community EcoSystem” and beyond, for new “StartUps / Entrepreneurs”, "Innovators", "Small Businesses" that are in the process of innovating, Be inclusive and attract / promote diversity, inform and guide the disenfranchised, people of color, and of different ethnic backgrounds, entering or engaging into the "StartUp World".

The Visions purpose is to keep the new and ongoing “StartUps / Entrepreneurs” moving forward with the best information and resources available.

To support the Vision purpose for "StartUps" / Entrepreneurs” in the “Greater St. Louis Area Community EcoSystem” StartLouis offers the following:

The StartLouis Web Site (Meetup Site) ( http://www.meetup.com/StartLouis ) (Currently being updated and more up to date based on future funding) is for use for information about Events, Resources , and much more for StartUps so that they can know were to go for their next steps,

Think of StartLouis as a "Starting Point" / "Feeder" to all of the other ESO's, Organization, Groups, Events, Newletters, Etc, that support / promote "StartUps / Entrepreneurs”.

Note, StartLouis is in the process of funding for a ",org" website, that is already reserved and will evolve into a "First Rate" website comparable to other "ESO's" and others that support the "StartUp World".
