Transition Economics is partnered with Arch Grants, a groundbreaking nonprofit organization with a mission to create an entrepreneurial culture and infrastructure in St. Louis to build successful companies. Through their Global Business Plan Competition, Arch Grants gives $50,000 cash grants and free support services to promising young companies in reciprocation for locating their business in St. Louis.
A portion of proceeds from the event will go directly to Arch Grants to assist their mission of cultivating the next generation of local St. Louis businesses.
We are still seeking sponsors for those organizations who want to associate their brand with our message of a future of durable economic growth.
Discussions at Transition Economics will be led by some of the most important intellectuals – a refreshing group of people with deep expertise, a positive outlook, and more than a touch of irreverence.
