The Science in Our Food
Back to Results
On the third Tuesday of the month, Venture Café Night: 39°N unites entrepreneurs, scientists and innovators to collaborate and learn at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center.
Check out the lineup of programs for Tuesday, February 20:
Better Buildings Through Benchmarking | US Green Building Council – Missouri Gateway Chapter @USGBCMOGateway 4 – 5 pm, Mary and Oliver Langenberg Theater
The building sector is the single largest user of energy in the United States, accounting for roughly 40 percent of total energy consumption. In cities, this figure can be even higher. And according to the US EPA, 30% of energy is wasted due to inefficiency. The City of St. Louis, as part of the City Energy Project, is in the process of implementing energy and water tracking and reporting requirements for its largest buildings. Throughout the region, many buildings benchmark energy use as a best practice – from congregations to office buildings to cultural institutions. Emily Andrews, Executive Director of the US Green Building Council – Missouri Gateway Chapter will discuss how benchmarking can help maintain and improve our buildings, boost the economy, reduce pollution, and protect public health.

Maximizing your Venture Cafe Night: 39°N Experience | VenCaf Volunteers, @VentureCafeSTL 5 – 5:30 pm, Schnucks Conference Room
We have seen and talked to many first-timers that were told to come to Venture Cafe but seem lost, overwhelmed or just unsure who to talk to and where to start. This session is for those attending a Venture Cafe Gathering for the first, second or third times, to gather to:
(1) hear about the resources, opportunities and programming offered;
(2) have someone ask them about what they are looking to get by attending; and
(3) potential connect them to the right person or, at least, place them on the right path.
The Future of Crowdfunding | Nvsted, @nvstedwithus 5:30 – 6:30 pm, Mary and Oliver Langenberg Theater
County Executive Steve Stenger will provide opening remarks and a brief update on 39 North, followed by a panel discussion focused on Nvsted’s potential to grow start-ups in and around St. Louis.
Nvsted is taking crowdfunding for St. Louis area start-ups into the future by connecting bright ideas with capital resources.
Born to Create | RYE-JOL, Instagram @ryejol 4 – 7 pm, 2nd Floor Lounge
David Rygiol will lead an exploration of what designers and startups have in common. This session will begin with a creative structural engineering competition and end with a data-driven analysis of our shared feelings. We’ll explore what drives us and what makes young companies special.
Calling all Volunteers! Venture Cafe Nights don’t just happen on their own. Besides the Venture Cafe staff, a team of six to eight volunteers help produce the magic. If you like telling the story through the creation of digital content, or greeting people as they visit, or serving up a drink to a thirsty innovators learn more here about volunteer opportunities.
