Local leaders receive awards for dedication to North St. Louis County

North County Incorporated (NCI) held its 47th annual Leadership Breakfast on May 17, where local leaders and businesses were honored for businesses and community development as well as diversity. One of the highlights of the event was the announcement that $3 billion worth of investments have been made in the North County region.

NCI is dedicated to creating positive change in North St. Louis County by connecting people, ideas and resources. Its work focuses on nurturing long-term sustainability and promoting the growth of the North County region, ensuring a thriving community for future generations. St. Louis Economic Development Partnership (STL Partnership) is an annual premier sponsor of NCI.

To assist expansion or challenges for small businesses throughout the North County area, NCI has developed a Small Business Navigator program where regional partners act as a case manager or mentor for small business owners. This program is funded through a grant from the St. Louis County Port Authority with the assistance of STL Partnership.
