You Need a Technical Co-founder & So Does Everyone Else — Here’s How to Do It Right

Hey everyone! I’m excited about this week’s lineup at our ITEN 2nd Thursday @ Venture Café Thursday. We have several practical and geeky sessions + some non-startup things that will also pique your interest. For starters, we hear. all. the. time. that entrepreneurs are looking for a developers and technical co-founders, but you’re not going to just find someone to join your team for free to build your product. Brandon and Ryan from 1904labs will share how to find a developer to join your team the right way. 

Also— Brazilian startup Brex (now valued north of $2B) is in St. Louis giving a talk on how they achieved product-market fit (they also bought the drinks!), meet the team who stood up the BattleHawks, and meet the Director of Mission Control at Planet Labs.

Couple other items of note:

  • Innovation Hall (where startups can work for free) is now hosting office hours. Read more.
  • See if Venture School is right for your idea at a free info session on Wed., Feb. 19th. Read more.
  • In an effort to create an environment best aligned with our credo, we are moving to 2 free drinks beginning March 5th.

See you Thursday!
