Building A Greater St. Louis Takes All of Us
Realizing our shared vision of meaningful and positive growth for the bi-state metropolitan area will require unprecedented investment, collaboration and participation. This is the reason that five economic development organizations combined as of January 1, 2021, to create Greater St. Louis, Inc. – a best-in-class platform for businesses, institutions and individuals representing the diversity of our region to invest and organize around a unified regional strategy for creating jobs, expanding inclusive economic development and improving our long-term global competitiveness.
We Invite Businesses All Sizes to Engage in Our Mission
The work of Greater St. Louis, Inc. (GSL) is achieved through the financial support of investors at all levels who champion a pro-growth agenda for our region. But our mission cannot be realized without the active participation of business and civic leaders who also commit their time, energy and expertise to engage in the work that results in broad prosperity.
For every level of investment, Greater St. Louis, Inc. offers meaningful opportunities for seasoned and emerging leaders to build relationships, acquire knowledge and affect change that will transform our region.
