Arch Grants Startup Competition 2023
The Arch Grants Startup Competition is on a worldwide search for innovative, diverse early-stage startups looking to take their business to the next level.
This competition attracts innovative entrepreneurs from around the world to compete for startup grants and equity in order to grow and scale their businesses.
Arch Grants disrupted the status quo of economic development in 2012 with a mission to transform the economy – in St. Louis and throughout the world – by attracting and retaining extraordinary entrepreneurs.
Through the unique and groundbreaking annual Startup Competition model, Arch Grants provides up to $100,000 in equity-free grants and access to an ecosystem of resources, helping early-stage startups grow and scale.
This program is a beacon for entrepreneurs globally, developing the next generation of employers, civic leaders, and philanthropists for the St. Louis region.
Entrepreneurship is a relentless pursuit
Those who risk it all to start something truly original are some of the bravest and boldest among us.
These believers and builders are at the core of what Arch Grants stands for: the unwavering spirit of big ideas and a community that rallies behind the entrepreneurs who pursue them. We champion the bold because we believe that together, we can create the future that we can now only imagine.
Who should apply?
Arch Grants is ideal for startups in their early stages where up to $100,000 and wrap-around support services will significantly impact the business.
All applicants must be incorporated as a for-profit entity. The competition requires companies to be at least at the validated-idea stage, which would include having a minimum viable product, customer discovery, or some other market research beyond gathering data online to demonstrate that your idea has been validated.
