2020 Arch Grants Gala

Check Back Soon for our 2021 Gala Date!

Our annual gala usually brings together 1,000 entrepreneurs, business leaders, elected officials, and civic boosters to celebrate innovation and entrepreneurship in St. Louis. In 2020, we continued this tradition through a virtual live event, inviting our entire region to join us in championing bold entrepreneurs and their startups. We celebrated the impact our 154 companies have made in St. Louis, welcomed the newest cohort of Arch Grants’ Founders, and presented the Entrepreneur Award to an outstanding local business leader. 

A Celebration of Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Hosted on October 28th

We announced our 2020 Cohort, celebrated the success and impact of St. Louis’ booming innovation community, and presented the Entrepreneur Award to Donald M. Suggs, Publisher & Executive Editor of the St. Louis American Newspaper.
