Saving Venture Café St. Louis: The Anders CPAs + Advisors Challenge

By bringing entrepreneurs, companies and investors together, Venture Café St. Louis has helped propel the success of our startup community. But as of last week, all in-person, public events, which are a main source of income, have been postponed due to COVID-19 health concerns. Venturé Cafe St. Louis has helped so many local startups in our community, and now it’s time to help them. With that in mind, we’re introducing the Anders CPAs + Advisors Challenge.

“Venture Café has always been a safe, welcoming space where entrepreneurs and startups can connect, share ideas and build relationships,” says Dave Finklang, founder of the Anders startup practice. “It has been the foundation for many creative ideas and conversations that have turned into profitable, growing companies in our region.”
