#1 Startup City in America
That’s what Popular Mechanics named St. Louis. Even Mashable called us the fastest growing market for tech-startup jobs in the nation.
Innovation is a part of who we are. From the journey of Lewis & Clark to today’s tech-startup revolution, the St. Louis region has always been a place to dare greatly and achieve big things.
Some of the world’s most popular and influential companies were born here: Express Scripts, Enterprise, Edward Jones, Anheuser-Busch, Worldwide Technology, Centene, Ralston Purina, and the list goes on.
The St. Louis area is home to not one, but three innovation districts. Our newest district, 39 North, nurtures research and collaboration in the field of plant science and AgTech. Cortex is home to a thriving biomedical community and the Washington Avenue tech corridor is remaking the heart of downtown.
