Like a magnet, T-REX attracts innovation to downtown St. Louis, Missouri. A coworking space and technology incubator, we offer a blank canvas—a space where ideas are conceived and brought to fruition. We’ve worked to create an environment that serves as a network of creativity, where abstraction finds clarity amongst a collection of bright and dedicated minds. Hovering above a vivacious, animated city, we’re now home to a growing community of entrepreneurs, developers, designers, mentors, educators and more. We welcome all ambitious minds.
