Young Production Company Has Heart And Soul In St. Louis, MO
Behind every closed door lies a new opportunity. No one knows this better than Helen Hempstead, Steve Schoen, John Leimkuehler and Jorge Riopedre, owners of Cor Productions. After being laid off from their jobs at a production studio, these former co-workers couldn't let their expertise in television and radio production go to waste. They knew they can work well together and so they decided to make it happen. The only catch was that none of the potential partners had business experience. In 1994, Helen and her partners walked into the St. Louis SCORE counseling office and requested sales and marketing help for their new business idea. They were teamed-up with SCORE counselor who offered the production team insightful and unique sales and marketing advice.
