Music streaming service Pandora opens office in St. Louis


Music streaming service Pandora on Monday opened an office in the Cortex innovation district.
The St. Louis office will be home to a sales staff of five to seven employees.

“Pandora came looking for us,” said Dougan Sherwood, co-founder and managing director of CIC St. Louis, which is housed in the @4240 building.

Sherwood said officials with Pandora, which is based in Oakland, Calif., wanted to replicate the culture they have at their headquarters.

“So when you come to a place like CIC, which has intentionally developed a culture of entrepreneurship, and startup activity and technology, I think the folks there felt like they were at home,” he said.
