As St. Louis continues to gain recognition as an affordable place to launch a business, the startup scene is growing at a solid rate with people from all over the United States, and even the world coming to St. Louis for a variety of reasons to pursue their dreams. Who better to talk with regarding this topic than Ginger Imster, who is the Executive Director of Arch Grants which provides 20 startups $50,000 in non-equity funds, along with many other resources, to either bring their business to St. Louis or keep their business in St. Louis to help these businesses grow. The discussion kicks off talking about Ginger's time growing up in Columbia Missouri then moving to St. Louis and spending just over 12 years working in a variety of positions at City Academy. City Academy is an independent private school in North St. Louis founded by Don Danforth III & Duncan Marshall that is fully accredited with the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) to help well prepared minority students have a better opportunity to succeed in life and break some of the generational & cultural cycles many in the community struggle with. Our discussion wrapped up discussing Arch Grants and Ginger talking about some of the wonderful companies to come through the Arch Grants program. Just like in real life, she and her husband are parents to four children, you can tell it is tough to talk about certain businesses while trying not to leave out others. So have a listen, get involved in the St. Louis startup scene and find ways to work with others to help make St. Louis a more successful and peaceful city.
