Our Investment Focus

Arch Grants is a nonprofit organization that accelerates economic development and community revitalization by providing $50,000 equity-free grants and pro bono support services to entrepreneurs who  locate their early-stage businesses in St. Louis. Through its rigorously competitive Global Startup Competition, Arch Grants retains and attracts the most innovative entrepreneurs to the St. Louis region. This program is an aggressive effort to inspire the next generation of employers, civic leaders, and philanthropists for St. Louis.

The industry-agnostic Global Startup Competition is year-round, with grants awarded once in the spring and again in the fall.  Arch Grants funds innovative technologies, products, and services wrapped within scalable business models that have the potential to make a national or international impact.
