About the Council

Join our Leadership Networks

As part of the Phase 1 Strategy for growing a healthier innovation pipeline for the St. Louis Metro, TechSTL is committing to support the expansion of regional networks. Each of the committees below are working in tandem with other active campaigns and initiatives within these spaces, unless there does not yet exist a group to drive the topic. Networks are places for representatives from our Tech Council member organizations to get more involved in area projects. Our team welcomes you to join one more of these networks and you will receive a confirmation email within the a few days of applying.

Networks will have the opportunity define their meeting cadence and project focus. TechSTL is happy to support both face-to-face meetings and hybrid models, depending on the request of the participants. If you are not yet a member of the council, you can pay to join or apply for a community stakeholder seat using the links below.
