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.

Everyone will have two minutes to deliver an elevator pitch on their idea, and we will then convene around a reception to support the ideas in moving forward.

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

Rahul Gupta pitched his idea for an STI communication tool to IdeaBounce participants.
