Who we are

Innovation Hall is the region’s first civic innovation center. We are the living room of St. Louis’ innovation community: a place where people can work, exchange knowledge, build meaningful relationships, and make their ideas happen.

OUR MISSION

We are fostering a strong, supportive, and accessible innovation community in the St. Louis region. We build, strengthen, and connect individuals and communities of innovators while expanding access to resources, programming, and networks.

OUR VALUES

We believe that innovation is for everyone and that anyone with an idea is an innovator. Innovation is present everywhere: in entrepreneurship, but also in the social sector + public service, in the creative economy, within larger corporations, and in the very fabric of human interaction.

VENTURE CAFÉ ST. LOUIS

We are a program of Venture Café St. Louis, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit. Our mission is to broaden, connect, and support the innovation community through a public network of spaces and programs to help anyone with an idea succeed. To learn more about our other programs, please visit vencafstl.org.

 

WHAT WE DO

EVENTS

Innovation Hall offers versatile event spaces designed to inspire creativity, foster collaboration, and make great ideas come to life. From conferences to hackathons to brainstorming sessions and workshops, Innovation Hall is a place to create connections and bring innovation to life. Learn more about hosting an event at Innovation Hall.

FREE, PUBLIC WORKSPACE

Innovation spaces exist all over the city, but they are often out of the public eye: behind security guards and up elevators, often requiring membership. Our civic lounge is a free, public work and meeting space, equipped with free WiFi, integrated power tables, and writable walls. Learn more about our civic lounge.

PROGRAMS + RESOURCES

Innovation Hall is a platform for the innovation community to do things that have never been done before. Our programs and resources are designed to bring together diverse perspectives, build deep and meaningful connections, and develop effective and insightful solutions.

OUR IMPACT AT A GLANCE

Innovation Hall’s unique model allows us to reinvest revenue from site fees back into the community through free, public workspace and discounted event space.

OUR SPONSORS

Operating our space and fulfilling our mission would not be possible without our generous sponsors and community partners. The primary partner in this project has been the Cortex Innovation Community, a vibrant 200-acre innovation hub and technology district home to 250 companies. When fully implemented, the Cortex master plan projects $2.3 billion of construction, over 4.5 million square feet of mixed-use development (research, office, clinical, residential, hotel, and retail), a new MetroLink light-rail station and 15,000 permanent technology-related jobs.

Without Cortex, this program would not have been possible.
