On Monday, June 1, 32 WUSTL undergraduate students will begin an exciting summer of discovery in St. Louis. Our students will support 22 commercial and 5 social venture startups throughout the region, including LaunchCode, Artifox, Tallyfy, Mayflower Bioscience, and Better Weekdays. Plus, they’ll get to know St. Louis in a unique way through our Summer Friday activities. On Friday mornings they will visit neighborhoods including Cherokee Street, Downtown, the Central West End, and the Cortex Innovation District. On Friday afternoons they’ll come back to campus to hear from a local entrepreneur and work on their own new venture ideas or to put their heads together to solve a challenge from one of our startup hosts. We’ll post updates from our students throughout the summer and can’t wait to share their stories. In the meantime, if you see them out and about this summer, in our communities or at Venture Cafe, please welcome them to what-may-be-their-first-but-we-hope-won’t-be-their-last St. Louis summer!
