Missouri Governor’s Innovation Task Force Proposes Steps to Improve Startup Ecosystem

We are strong believers that startup companies are critical to the growth of the Missouri economy, leading to the creation of higher paying, quality jobs and resources in the state.  To address the level of support entrepreneurs receive at the state government level, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens assembled the Governor’s Innovation Task Force (GITF).

We have been following the task force’s activity closely, and discussed several of the task force’s surveys in last month’s newsletter.  This month, there is even more to discuss.  After nearly three months, a 33-member steering committee with representatives from academia, business, entrepreneurs, government, civic organizations, and entrepreneur ecosystem partners across the state worked to gather input from Missourians.
