Empower the St. Louis Community

"When we hear of a great project, we get involved," said Tim McFadden, shareholder and attorney lead the Startup Ventures practice at Polsinelli in St. Louis. "As a longtime, continuous supporter of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, Polsinelli was contacted by TechShop earl as a founding sponsor. We saw the opportunity that TechShop could bring to the community and potentially to Polsinelli clients, a few of which are already utilizing TechShop's vast resources to develop and refine their products."
