Catalyzing Innovation: Strategies for Missouri to Drive Innovation & Entrepreneurship

A Data-Driven Approach for Supporting Innovation & Entrepreneurship Over the Next Decade

Informed by a robust six-month planning process with guidance from a statewide Steering Committee and input from over 500 individuals across the state, TEConomy Partners, LLC developed a report based on their data-driven analysis that recommends five bold and compelling strategies for the future.

This report will help set the direction for policies, programs, and initiatives that foster and support the further growth of entrepreneurs and the advancement of innovation and technology across the State of Missouri.

In September 2023, MTC released an Implementation Plan detailing the execution of the five strategies and 16 action items recommended in the Catalyzing Innovation Report. The Implementation Plan details how MTC will apply these strategies to drive economic development.
