The Columbia/Jefferson City Region sits in central Missouri. Anchored by the University of Missouri in Columbia and the State Capital in Jefferson City, this is a region of growth, innovation and cooperation.
A uniquely skilled and educated population combined with a strong Midwestern work ethic is the formula for a highly productive workforce. Key employment sectors – health innovation, information technology, financial and professional services, advanced manufacturing, agtech, and more – are broadly represented throughout the region.
The University of Missouri’s flagship campus (MU) in Columbia and its science and technology campus (Missouri S&T) in Rolla provide a steady stream of talent for businesses in all sectors, including agtech, energy, and IT.
