Aptimmune Biologics, an animal health company that specializes in creating swine vaccines, was recently named among the top seven agtech startups to watch in 2018, by Agriculture.com. The agtech company ranked third on the list, and according to the article, has raised $7.5 million to date.
The company recently relocated its headquarters and laboratory to the Bio-Research & Development Growth (BRDG) Park in St. Louis, in Missouri’s 39 North innovation district. The company says the move was “due in large part to the exceptional financial and logistics support the company has received from investors and other businesses in the St. Louis area.”
39 North is Missouri’s new agtech innovation district, which covers nearly 600 acres in Missouri and includes many of the region’s top agtech companies including Monsanto, the Danforth Plant Science Center, 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.
