There’s a great article about our two favorite cities on CNN.com. It’s talking about how the two once-prosperous cities lost their mojo towards the end of the last century, but are gaining it back and then some.
Both St. Louis and Kansas City are reinventing themselves by embracing entrepreneurs and high-tech innovation. It’s exciting to see and you can actually feel the energy driving around the cities. As a company with deep roots in both cities, we’re very excited to witness and support the reinvention of St. Louis and Kansas City.
Midwestern tech hub

Boeing, Unisys and Hudson’s Bay Company are among the many companies that expanded their tech operations in St. Louis in recent years, and tech recruiting portal Dice.com has reported several times that the city is among the fastest-growing in the United States for new jobs in the tech sector.
