Ben Burke on Commitment and Creativity at Arch Grants

"When you meet somebody, you just feel, you know, you see that they're not going to lose. They're not going to give in."

Arch Grants could be considered the linchpin of the St Louis startup community. Without it, the innovation community itself, and the publication for which I’m typing this would probably not exist.

So, when Ben explains that he is one of just four full-time employees at this small nonprofit, I imagine how dynamic and productive this small group (and their many partners and volunteers) must be.

On this episode of STL Community Cast, we discuss Ben’s role as Director of Entrepreneurship, and the far-reaching impacts of the 5-year-old program in St Louis.
