St. Louis Startups expand beyond T-REX (incubator space) Downtown



http://downtowntrex.com/2014/05/startup-footprint/

Pixel Press

The old Laclede Gas Building
Pixel Press might seem like all fun and games, but fun and games can be hard work! The startup arrived at T-REX in 2012 ready to work and play. “Beyond being startup budget friendly, having access to founders of other companies that were at similar stages meant getting advice was that much easier… the likelihood of talking through common issues with your peers when they are just next door,” says CEO Robin Rath. Pixel Press parted ways with the Railway Exchange Building at the same time T-REX did last January.
What they were looking for in a new space:
-A fun environment that would allow room to grow
-Extra space to have larger testing sessions from our players
-Stay downtown
