AUSTIN, Tex. (KMOX) – We’ve heard it over and over again: St. Louis is becoming a start-up city. But is that a reflection of reality or a sales pitch?
A national expert says absolutely.
KMOX’s Michael Calhoun, reporting from the South by Southwest Interactive Festival, caught up with Amy Millman of Springboard Enterprises, which works with women across the country who are raising equity investments for their technology-related start-ups.
She’s well traveled and well versed in the elements of success. And she says St. Louis needs to remember its roots.
“In its very earliest form, people came to St. Louis because they were looking for a new way to think about their lives, their careers, the economics” she explained. “It’s just natural to come back to St. Louis.”
