The first round of the Arch Grants business plan competition is now open. Arch Grants is a start-up competition that awards $50,000 grants to start-ups that are in st. Louis or that are willing to relocate to st. Louis. Their aim is to create an entrepreneurial culture and infrastructure to build successful companies in St. Louis.
