To Be Announced
VELOCITY STL Startup Feature (December 2022)
December 7, 2022
At the Old Post Office Downtown STL.
Join us for a night of pitches and connections as the VELOCITY STL startups share their “mafia offers” and what’s next as this powerful 12-week pre-accelerator comes to a close. Diving deep into a customer discovery and personal growth process, these founders have worked hard developing the strongest solution possible for their well-researched customer—an offer they can’t refuse.
With products and services improving personal wellness, event experiences, community revitalization, farming, equipment maintenance, IT support, employee relations, and more the evening will showcase many of the exciting new startups impacting the region. Come see what happens when you ask potential customers, and yourself, the right questions at the beginning so you can avoid spinning your wheels and create true VELOCITY!
It was a great night hearing from several awesome startups from the very first VELOCITY cohort! Fun making lots of fabulous connections as well while networking after the pitches!
