St. Louis startup wins South by Southwest competition



Better Weekdays, a startup that moved to St. Louis after it received a $50,000 investment from tech accelerator Capital Innovators in 2014, has won a South by Southwest competition called SXSWedu Launch.

Better Weekdays, led by CEO Chris Motley, has developed a new platform called The Whether, which helps employers attract and engage college graduates. That platform is a shift from Better Weekdays’ previous mission, which helped place employees at companies based on compatibility.
