A Look Back: President Obama Highlights Missouri’s Global Leadership In Agtech

All month long Missouri Partnership is taking a look back at 31 of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year. Today we take a look back at President Barack Obama’s keynote speech at the 2016 SelectUSA Investment Summit in Washington DC.

Missouri attended the 2015 SelectUSA Investment Summit in Washington DC and met an Indian agtech company who in less than a year would set up shop in the state. That company is Lacgene Technologies, and in 2016 they were chosen as one of two companies highlighted by President Barack Obama during his keynote speech.

Lacgene Technologies focuses on providing innovative, natural, agricultural products and solutions using genetics, chemical processes and nanotechnology. The U.S. branch of the organization operates as Blue Orb Solutions.
