Another month and another start to our weekly thematic programming! The start of the month is our Serendiptious Collions Gathering dedicated to networking, meeting your community, and getting to know those who are changing our ecosystem. Let’s get into what you might’ve missed!

Starting things off, Emily Hemingway of TechSTL brought along Sarah Benoit, Lead Instructor at JB Media Institute to speak about the subject of Influencer Marketing. Turning your fans into customers is a hot topic right now as Social Media continues to be one of the best sources of traffic and traction. Sarah’s insight and experience honed in on what can give your businesses the best ROI when it comes to sales generation!

Alongside that session, we also had an active community member and all-around amazing Resource Wrangler, Mary Scott host her Office Hours: Brainstorm Your Business Challenge. Mary guided a session dedicated to the questions and obstacles new businesses had and how you can work to solve them. Mary’s expertise is worth its weight in gold as an ecosystem veteran and we hope to have her back sometime soon to continue to drop gems of knowledge.

Emily Hemingway actually brought a double feature this week as she invited John Simanowitz, CEO & Founder of Integrity to speak about the latest and greatest breakthroughs in AI. From ChatGPT to AI Art, the capabilities that machine learning can do are absolutely endless. John himself leads Integrity’s new flagship platform called Scribble AI which works to generate blog content, we might be utilizing it before you even know it!

Lastly, we want to thank the plethora of Lawyers & Attorneys that joined us last Thursday as they spoke on new FTC Rulings and led a presentation about non-competes and protections for IP. It was a learning experience to hear them tell the pros and cons of a potential ruling that could change the entire landscape of non-compete clauses.

With that, Venture Cafe, we’ve concluded our 3rd Serendipitous Collions and look forward to seeing you this week for Community Activations! See you there!
