It’s difficult for a city to improve on a reputation for great baseball and delicious beer, but St. Louis does just that. With its thriving, industry-spanning innovation ecosystem, featuring the city in its own INNOVATE® edition was an obvious choice. So many of Missouri’s innovators have found a home in St. Louis. The Missouri Medical Cannabis Trade Association (MoCann), GlobalHack, Advocado, the St. Louis Surge, and Connections to Success all have a home in INNOVATE® St. Louis’ pages, too, and they represent the diversity of the city’s innovation through its funders and accelerators, technology, marketing, sports, and nonprofits, respectively.

INNOVATE® St. Louis comprises nearly 300 pages of what’s going right in the city. Starting with St. Louis’ Thought Leaders, this high-end coffee-table book includes chapters that reflect the city’s main sectors of innovation: Construction, Arts & Entertainment, Biology & Human Health, Culinary Innovation, Education & Training, Financial and Corporate Innovation, Community Development, Accelerators & Mentors, Hospitality, Marketings, ESOs, Product Innovation, Social Innovation, Media & Events, Sports & Human Performance, and other Innovation Enablers.

Slated to wrap up production by the end of September, INNOVATE St. Louis, like the city itself, is destined for greatness, thanks to the amazing enterprises and people that are part of it.
