We’re Seeking Outstanding Ideas and the Founders Behind Them

Come be a part of the community that empowers startups and innovative entrepreneurs to thrive. 

In addition to $75,000 in equity-free funding (+ $25,000 for startups relocating to St. Louis) and access to an ecosystem of resources, Arch Grants Founders from every cohort since the very first in 2012 have created a welcoming and supportive culture of collaboration and peer-learning.  

19%
of startups led or co-led by immigrants
32%
of startups led or co-led by women
2,400+
unique commercialized products

Because of Arch Grants, we’ve had the courage to work in a more challenging market with higher returns. Not only was the $50,000 grant helpful, but the credibility we received, as well as the introductions to potential clients, has helped us become successful faster than we predicted.
