Launch St. Louis is growing and we’re actively searching for board members to accommodate our growth. While we’re interested in folks with a variety of skill sets, our immediate needs are listed below. Please contact us if you think you might be a good fit! As a heads up – this board is not a “networking board” – this requires a lot of work and commitment. But, we promise, it’s well worth it!

Interested? Great. Let us know.
