The Arch Grants Gala is a celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit and community within St. Louis. This event blends the playfulness of the entrepreneurial experience with the esteem of a traditional philanthropic event. Each year, Arch Grants gives tribute to the creative forces that are changing the local landscape and are building the St. Louis of tomorrow.
The evening includes networking, a seated dinner, award presentation, and a showcase of Arch Grants Recipients. Supporters of Arch Grants have an opportunity to interact with Arch Grants Entrepreneurs and celebrate the growth of the startup culture in St. Louis. At the conclusion of the event, the Arch Grants Entrepreneur Award is presented to a St. Louis entrepreneur who has made a significant difference in the community.

In 2015, the Arch Grants Entrepreneur Award was presented to Rodger Riney of Scottrade Financial Services, Inc. for his extraordinary contributions as a prominent entrepreneur.
Riney created the largest office branch network among online investment firms. He founded Scottrade in 1980 on his belief of doing the right thing – for clients, associates, and his community – and this principle is firmly embedded within Scottrade’s culture.
