Community Activations: Let's Get It Poppin'

February 10, 2023

As we continue our journey throughout the year of 2023, we here at Venture Cafe are committing to our weekly thematic programming. That involves us doing our Community Activation Gathering every second week, in which we feature a company from our ecosystem that deserves to be highlighted through their products. Let's get into what you might've missed at this week's Community Activation.

As we continue our journey throughout the year of 2023, we here at Venture Cafe are committing to our weekly thematic programming. That involves us doing our Community Activation Gathering every second week, in which we feature a company from our ecosystem that deserves to be highlighted through their products. Let’s get into what you might’ve missed at this week’s Community Activation.

This week we helped showcase Angela Liebermann’sCalming Station: Press The RESET Button. Where she helped individuals reconnect with themselves through a series of calming exercises that centered around breathing. I hear that the meditation was near instantaneously soothing.

At the same time, we had Sista’s Pop Co-Founder, Uniti Hicks arrive to grace us with free product samples of her amazing gourmet popcorn. If you didn’t get an opportunity to come out and try it, no worries, keep on the lookout for the future because I’m sure she will return to us! Following her demonstration and samples, we had TechSTL’s, Founders Unplugged session. This was dedicated to two amazing founders of color, Doug Spencer of Bold XchangeEmory Reignz of Grab My Bag. Both spoke to their expertise in being veteran entrepreneurs and how the obstacles or hurdles they faced prepared them for the world of business.

Finally, given that it IS Black History Month, we hosted an Innovation Trivia: Black History Edition, which had a team walk away with some awesome prizes, all in all, it was a great gathering with a bunch of serendipitous collisions that we love to see here at Venture. Next week will be our COLLIDE event, so feel free to keep on the lookout on our website and socials for who will be coming. See you all then!
