Innovation. It’s becoming a buzz word that really doesn’t mean anything, since everyone claims to be the next center of innovation.

However, Missouri really is THE center of innovation.

From the Cortex Innovation Community in St. Louis, to the UMKC Innovation Center in Kansas City, talent across Missouri are developing the latest innovations within our core industries. And it’s not just startups. Major corporations have significant presence within these districts as they collaborate with the best and the brightest to take our state into the future.

What I like about Missouri is the people. I like the work ethic that comes with the people. I like the honesty you encounter.
