Paul Singh is on a mission. He is criss-crossing America, connecting with startup entrepreneurs from across the nation. He’ll be stopping in cities like Shreveport, Pittsburgh, Tulsa, Winston-Salem, and as of this August, St. Louis.

The veteran entrepreneur and VC investor will be spending several days in the gateway to the west as part of the Results Junkies North America Tech Tour.

Paul, one of the original three partners of 500 Startups, knows more than just a little bit about startups. In the last five years, he’s flown over 500,000 miles circling the globe. A startup founder himself, he’s been on both sides of the table and “has had his fair share of both successful exits and struggles past proof of concept.” That explains his enormous following by founders and investors alike.

St. Louis Pit Stop
Venture Cafe St. Louis is excited to host the Results Junkies on their St. Louis pit stop, providing another powerful way for us to support local startups in our community. The team from Results Junkies will offer support, guidance and get deeply involved in the local scene through a week-long series of events and programs. The visit includes free office hours, tours of local incubators/coworking spaces with local innovators, investor dinners, workshops and pitch sessions.
