All month long Missouri Partnership is taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year, and today we are taking a look back at Square’s expansion in St. Louis, Missouri.
In May, Square Inc., a leading financial services company located in the Cortex Innovation Community in St. Louis, Missouri, announced it was doubling its footprint and creating an additional 300+ new jobs. The company first established their presence in St. Louis in Cortex’s @4240 Building in September 2015 with 200+ new jobs to support their growing mobile payments company.
“Square is proud to be from St. Louis and thrilled to expand our presence here, where we’ve exceeded our growth expectations thanks to the wealth of local talent,” said Jim McKelvey, co-founder and director of Square. “St. Louis is home to tens of thousands of Square sellers and we’re thankful for the support of our city and state partners in furthering their growth. We’re excited for what’s ahead.”
