In partnership with Independent Youth, we host the annual Teen Entrepreneurship Symposium. This past symposium saw over 700 high school kids from around the region (as far as Kansas City and Chicago) learn more about entrepreneurship from Jim McKelvey, the co-founder of Square. In addition, 15 nationally recognized high school entrepreneurs flew in from around the country to lead the students in various breakout sessions. Although none of these rockstar teen entrepreneurs have ever heard of SLU, one Senior chose SLU to attend. She was the first high school investment made by the Sharks on the TV show, Shark Tank.
StartUp Connection ’14 is the premier venue for meeting the top new startups on the St. Louis scene. From 4:00 – 7:00 pm, you can meet the entrepreneurs at their display tables in the Venture Showcase, explore the Resource Fair to find the support you need for your own startup, and listen to the entrepreneurs’ elevator pitches on the Pitch Stage – all during some of the best networking you will do this year.
This event will highlight St. Louis based professionals in business, law, and public health who have pursued careers with a global focus. While our panelists work for companies that are based in St. Louis, they have traveled extensively and worked directly with international populations. This panel will give current SLU students an opportunity to hear about the global career opportunities that are available to them in St. Louis!
