What is This?

Our community of freelance creatives work with emerging startups in St. Louis. We send out weekly newsletters of freelance requests to our designers, developers and marketers to help increase local collaboration & awareness.

This initiative is free for everyone &  based solely around our excitement to contribute to the St. Louis startup ecosystem.

Startups

It can be extremely difficult for founders to find and engage with local talent to design their prototypes, build their applications and market their products. While the “who do you know” method works, it isn’t scalable. We want to lead a movement that can grow with the demand.

Talent

The creatives in our community consist of handpicked designers, developers and marketers. They are primarily employed at the top agencies and companies in the area, but want to engage with local startups on a freelance basis to support new ventures.
