Missouri’s tech industry has gotten plenty of good press lately, from Governor Mike Parson signing the Show-Me state’s first STEM education bill, to Kansas City being named among the top cities in the U.S. for women in tech. Now one Missouri city is receiving more good news, as the Brookings Institute has named St. Louis, Missouri, among the eight most digitally inclusive cities in America.
According to Brookings, “St. Louis’s tech scene is young and vibrant. The metro area is the only tech ecosystem where Hispanic workers are more highly represented in tech than in the broader regional workforce.”
The study also highlighted LaunchCode, a non-profit organization based in St. Louis that works with businesses to set up apprenticeships in technology for talented people who lack the traditional IT credentials.
