Innovation in the Sport of Fencing Happy Hour
June 29, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
En garde! But what exactly does the STL Innovation Community & the sport of fencing have in common, you ask? Not only is the 2018 National Championships for USA Fencing taking place next door at America's Center, but the sport of fencing is evolving to adapt to 21st century technological advancements (think wireless point/violation sensors, interactive scoreboard displays, etc). T-REX, along with Stadia Ventures, Arch Grants and others, are working with Daugherty Business Solutions throughout the upcoming National Championships to open discussion on how tapping into the unique St. Louis startup community could effectively innovate this rapidly advancing sport, as well as breakdown the economic impact tournament sports has on our city & region. Come for free food & drinks, and stay for a live fencing demonstration!
