OPO, the co-working incubator for digital startups in St. Charles, MO, is hosting its first Demo Day on Wednesday, November 4, from 6:30-9pm. Ten members will present their concepts and products to potential investors in partnership with Washington University.
“For being only 5 months old, we have a great group of members who are doing some amazing things,” says Megan McKissen, Community Manager at OPO. “To be a true incubator, we want to give our members the opportunity to pitch their products, not only to connect with investors but also for valuable advice and direction on getting to the next stage.”
Located in the newly renovated Old Post Office building, OPO provides a conducive environment for regional startups to grow their company with affordable workspace and access to mentors, potential investors, programming, educational resources and a community of local entrepreneurs.
Open to the public, Demo Day is part of OPO’s Startup Wednesdays, weekly gatherings that offer members a chance to collaborate with other startups, hear stories from accomplished founders around the St. Louis area, learn from leading coaches and mentors and connect with investors.
Here’s a look at the nine members presenting:
