BioGenerator, the investment arm of St. Louis bioscience booster BioSTL, recently announced that it has expanded its shared lab space concept to the 39 North agtech innovation district, in St. Louis, Missouri. The move is an attempt to replicate the success of its startup co-working labs in the Cortex Innovation Community.
BioGenerator launched its BioGenerator Labs in 2010, as a shared co-working lab facility in the Cortex district, and is currently used by dozens of companies. The facility was the first co-working wet lab model in the United States, according to BioGenerator.
Missouri’s new agtech innovation community 39 North took root in St. Louis in 2016. The district covers nearly 600 acres in Missouri and includes many of the region’s top agtech companies including the Danforth Plant Science Center, Bio-Research & Development Growth (BRDG) Park and the Helix Center Biotech Incubator. 39 North is geared toward providing the lifestyle often sought by today’s highly skilled scientific workers, with a mix of retail, residential and office space connected by walking and biking trails.
