Alumni-founded gaming startup gets support

The founders of IDC Projects, a gaming company started by three S&T alumni, stepped up their game last fall by getting an infusion of capital from two St. Louis investors. The firm was one of 15 St. Louis-area startup companies to win $50,000 from Arch Grants to further develop the business. Arch Grants also provides free legal and accounting help, plus access to angel investors.

IDC raised another $50,000 from Capital Innovators, a technology accelerator fund based in downtown St. Louis.

IDC Projects is a gaming and mobile app firm founded in 2008 by then-Missouri S&T students Michael Orlando, IDE’09, EE’10, MS EMgt’12, R.J. Miller, IDE’10, and Colby Hall, EMgt’09, MBA’10. The firm released its latest mobile game, Motocross Sniper, a virtual paintball app, last fall. The company’s first product was a free iPhone app that counts down the number of days until the next Best Ever St. Pat’s celebration. That app was created in 2008, in time for the 100th anniversary of St. Pat’s.
