CIC St. Louis opened its doors in October 2014 as the first CIC expansion outside of Massachusetts. Partnering with the growing Cortex district, we quickly established two locations, 4240 Duncan and CIC@CET. Our third location at 4220 Duncan opened in May of 2018!
CIC St. Louis offers beautiful design, a wide variety of dedicated offices, stocked kitchens, phone booths, wet lab space and event spaces. Our staff continues to be energized and motivated by the incredible thinkers and creators in St. Louis, and are working to support and encourage them more every day. Let’s grow together!
Venture Café St. Louis is CIC's non-profit sister organization. Their mission is to strengthen the innovation ecosystem, connecting innovators to make things happen. Every Thursday, innovators gather at Venture Café for impactful connections. This past year Venture Café has facilitated a growing community of returning innovators and ambassadors. Last year, the Café brought in 25,000 visitors!
