goBRANDgo!, a marketing company headquartered in St. Louis, announced they will embark on a $2 million expansion to create a not-for-profit facility, Conflux Co-Learning. The building will be the site for the nation’s first co-learning space for the manufacturing supply chain, and is expected to bring 28 new jobs to the area.
“It’s always great to see Missouri grown businesses expanding,” said Missouri Governor Mike Parson. “goBRANDgo! is an exciting, innovative business that is dedicated to helping other businesses and the community be the best they can be. We look forward to seeing this company continue to grow and fulfill its mission.”
Conflux Co-Learning will be located in the former Carondelet School building—a 25,000 sq. ft. facility that was originally built in 1871 to serve 400+ children of local laborers and manufacturers. Continuing the location’s tradition of education, Conflux Co-Learning plans to create the environment that manufacturers and distribution leaders need to learn and grow from each other.
“Manufacturers are going to see more change in the next 5 years than they’ve seen in the last 50,” said goBRANDgo! CEO Derek Weber. “The only companies surviving this tidal wave of change will be the ones who innovate their business model and go-to-market strategy. Conflux Co-Learning will curate the content and connections helping make these difficult transitions more successful, keeping these vital businesses and plants thriving in St Louis and communities across the country.”
goBRANDgo! is a Missouri-made business that works with manufacturing and industrial companies to foster growth through effective marketing and continued partnership.
“goBRANDgo! is a great fit for St. Louis because it embodies the energy of the region,” said CEO & President of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership Rodney Crim. “With our pro-business climate and culture of innovation and achievement, St. Louis is a prime location for businesses to grow.”
