IdeaBounce® is both an online platform and event for sharing ideas and making connections. This is an opportunity to pitch your idea (no matter how “half-baked”), get feedback on it, and make connections. Inventors, founders, and startups from all across the St. Louis region, and those interested in supporting them, are invited to attend.

At an IdeaBounce® each person has two minutes to deliver an elevator pitch on their idea. IdeaBounce® events usually end with time for refreshments and networking to help pitchers make connections to move their ideas forward.

Our next IdeaBounce® event will be listed on our events page, but you can submit a new idea anytime at
