Engage, Align, Act

We engage with business and civic leaders to align priorities and lead initiatives that build on our region’s strengths, catalyze new investment and address our region’s challenges — all to advance inclusive growth.

While they will evolve over time, our initial growth-focused initiatives are outlined below.

Business Attraction

Our business attraction experts help companies meet their location and expansion needs within the bi-state metropolitan area. We assist with real estate, potential financial incentives, and connections to industry leaders. If you’re looking to consolidate, expand or move, we’re here to help.

Downtown STL

Metro-wide inclusive growth will not happen without a strong urban core.  We lead efforts to boost employment density, promote innovation, improve access, and enhance the quality of life in the urban core.

Public Policy

Public policy is key to addressing systemic change. We are committed to representing the regional business community in both Missouri and Illinois to achieve pro-growth and inclusive public policies.


The global geospatial industry hub is right here. We champion St. Louis as the geospatial and location intelligence industry center of excellence, supporting a rapidly growing ecosystem of startups, researchers, government partners, and sector leaders.

Inclusive Business Solutions

Minority-owned businesses are vital to our community. Through our programs, we increase access and reduce barriers to develop multicultural and racially diverse business leaders and entrepreneurs.

STL 2030 Jobs Plan

Economic growth must be inclusive growth. We steward metro-wide action of the STL 2030 Jobs Plan to substantially increase the number of high-quality jobs in the metro area and reduce racial inequities.


St. Louisans are tenacious, loyal and big-hearted. We amplify an authentic narrative through stories of people moving the region forward and showcasing our community in the media.
