How innovators, thinkers, doers and makers are revitalizing the St. Louis region

O

ver the past few years, St. Louis has seen incredible growth in our innovative industries, thriving food scene, expanded cultural amenities and has become one of the fastest-growing locations for entrepreneurs - without compromising the affordable, livable nature of our region - and that renaissance is driven by our innovators, thinkers, doers and makers. Southwest Magazine called the region a “dream factory� and STLMade agrees.

STLMade is a movement working to shine a light on the people, innovations, and ideas that are driving growth and change in our region so that residents and non-residents alike can better see the renaissance for themselves. Through stories on theSTL.com, the movement aims to highlight the work being done and the progress being made - from building communities that are more inclusive, to creating new industries and economic opportunities, to finding those ideal careers people never thought possible.
