About Us

Nationally recognized for providing the infrastructure and resources needed for early-stage entrepreneurs in the fields of information technology, bioscience, manufactured products, and food to innovate and thrive, the Square One (SQ1) series plays an important program role in the Cortex district and broader St. Louis region.

Signature programs include the Square One (SQ1) Ignite and Boot Camp training programs, workshops and seminars, and other educational programming, often done in partnership with other ecosystem partners. We are also pleased to host the monthly One Million Cups monthly, Starting from Square One on the 4th Thursday of every month, and the monthly VOICES session. All programs are available at little or no cost to early-stage entrepreneurs throughout the region.
