The first edition of INNOVATE® St. Louis was a compilation of more than 300 pages of innovators and entrepreneurs making a difference in the ecosystem of St. Louis. The book was a great success and the time is perfect for a second edition. The landscape continues to evolve and INNOVATE® St. Louis aims to showcase all the thought leaders and companies who are shifting the status quo in their industry, especially given the realities of the past year. St. Louis, with its thriving, industry-spanning innovation ecosystem, is the perfect place for the INNOVATE® Series and we look forward to publishing, what promises to be a not-to-be-missed volume 2.
INNOVATE® St. Louis Vol. 2 will be 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.
