TechShop, a do-it-yourself industrial workshop, based in seven cities made its pitch Thursday to expand into St. Louis.
More than 200 people attended the TechShop's presentation. The company provides industrial equipment and classes for amateur and professional inventors. It is hoping to open a location in Cortex, St. Louis’ technology district.
But in order to open its doors, TechShop needs 1,000 memberships. Company COO and Vice President of Business Development Dan Woods pushed that point at the presentation.
Earlier this month, business leaders and St. Louis City and County officials announced a new effort to support entrepreneurs and startup companies in the St. Louis region. The goal is to raise $100 million over the next five years.
