On November 3, from 3-7:30 pm, T-REX is hosting the Peer to Peer Networking Symposium. Designed for businesses with five years of experience or less, but open to everyone, Peer to Peer aims to set up professionals for success through hands-on workshops, free one-on-one consulting with service providers and keynote presentations on strategies essential to business growth.

Rather than structured as another stuffy conference, the event aims to have an open structure, where you can come and go as you please and learn about topics that appeal to you. If you aren’t really sure what it is you want to know more about, pop in and out of workshops and peruse the several exhibitors, then enjoy food and drinks provided by Downtown restaurants during breaks.

Following a welcome by T-REX Executive Director Patty Hagan, guests can attend eight back-to-back talks on a range of topics, from “Cool Space, Happy Space Work Spaces in Downtown St. Louis” led by Roger Zigler of Gershman Commercial Real Estate to “The Importance of Branding in Social Media led by Marisa Lather of Sandbox Creative.” See the full list of breakouts here.

Following the talks, there are four 10-minute keynotes:

Innovation and Creation: How to Advance a Community of Support
Patricia Hagen, PhD President, Technology Entrepreneur Center/Executive Director, T-Rex

Live, Work, Grow St. Louis
Tishaura Jones Treasurer, City of St. Louis

Tyler King and Alex Haimann, Co-Founders Less Annoying CRM

Ben Hochman, Sports Columnist—St. Louis Post-Dispatch

While general admission is $25, T-REX is waiving the fee for any startup member, student or current or past member of any co-working space or incubator in the St. Louis area. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
