Why the name T-REX?

In our first form, our tech incubator occupied part of the Railway Exchange Building downtown.
(Technology Entrepreneur Center @ the Railway Exchange = T-REX -- get it?)
Just like the startups we support, we ourselves have grown and evolved over time. Our name is not just a cool moniker, but an important part of our history – we are still a group committed to growing gigantic companies from the ground up, beneath the St. Louis skyline.

"T-REX changed my life. The first time I stepped in the door, I joined a group of strangers and won St. Louis' first Startup Weekend. Since then, we've won or raised over a quarter of a million dollars, quit our day jobs, started generating revenue, and hiring employees to grow our business."

− Drew, CEO of Juristat

"T-REX allows you to meet other entrepreneurs with different skill sets, leading to cross-disciplinary partnerships. I'm now collaborating with a gaming company to develop biopharmaceuticals using virtual reality!"

− Dr. Chris Ho, Drug Design Methodologies, Recipient of the 2018 St. Louis Mayor's Innovation Award

"The early days of T-REX will go down in history...this place has always been a dreamland for entrepreneurs."

− Michael Orlando, President of Lumate
