big idea to big growth

In St. Louis, we’re experiencing a change in the way we work and a change in the types of industries that are growing jobs and opportunities.

I’d like to introduce you to someone who is a visionary entrepreneur, John Sagartz, president, CEO, and founder of Seventh Wave Laboratories. Seventh Wave is a drug discovery research company located in STLVentureWorks-West County, a small business incubator in Chesterfield. Here, startups like Seventh Wave find the space and support to boost growth. And now, Sagartz and his small business are moving out of STLVentureWorks and into an impressive, 50,000SF facility in Maryland Heights.

STLVentureWorks is more than just a place. Our team provides on-site support staff, learning workshops, networking opportunities, and customized mentoring. Each of the five locations is different, offering a range of office, meeting, retail, warehouse, manufacturing, and laboratory space. The STLVentureWorks program is simple, allowing entrepreneurs and innovators to craft, imagine, examine and assess their business plans without wasting resources or muddling their approach. This same model is being utilized by startups around the country.

Check out what STLVentrureWorks has to offer.
