Our Programs


Venture Café St. Louis operates two programs and will add additional programs in the future as the operation grows.

The Venture Café Thursday Gathering

This is a weekly event that attracts new and existing members of the innovation community. It is the foundation and lynchpin of the Venture Café program, contributing deeply to all other aspects of the organization’s work. The Weekly Gathering combines opportunities to network and a variety of high-impact educational sessions. Venture Café St. Louis, brings in over 530 people weekly. It is important to note that approximately 30% of the attendees are new each week, 20% attend occasionally, and 50% are frequent attendees. This mix allows for the events to remain fresh and exciting due to the new attendees and also allows for deep relationships and a strong community to be formed over time. Over the course of one year, there can be 25,000 attendees and nearly 500 educational sessions as part of the Thursday Gathering.

Join us next Thursday from 3–8pm on the 2nd floor of 4240 Duncan Ave., St. Louis, MO 63110  |  Check the lineup on our calendar
