Last week, the St. Louis Business Journal highlighted the Collective in an article titled, "Cultivating A Fair Ecosystem".
A small snippet from that article:
One group in particular was built with the sole intent of addressing the issue.
The St. Louis Equity in Entrepreneurship Collective, a product of the BioSTL innovation hub, this month appointed its first full-time leader, LaShana Lewis, whose goal is to draft the plan toward a more inclusive St. Louis entrepreneurial community.
“People are starting to notice (the growth in St. Louis). There are companies even moving from San Francisco and New York to change their founding area to here,” Lewis said. “I want people to feel like those companies are welcome and that diversity is something very important to us.”
