The 2020 Arch Grants cohort included a strategic and unprecedented element. In an effort to continue to build upon St. Louis’ geospatial revolution, 5 of their transformative $50,000 equity-free grants and pro-bono resources were awarded specifically to geospatial startups. Partnering with T-REX’s new Geospatial Innovation Center, these 5 geospatial startups have also been awarded incubator space for the duration of their grant, embedding them within our growing geospatial ecosystem.
The T-REX team, like the rest of our community, grieves the loss of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, David McAtee, and the many who have been taken before them.
We are humbled at the sheer gravity of this moment. We are heartbroken, hearing the continued pain and outcry of our Black sisters and brothers. Truly, if you are not outraged, you are not paying attention.
