The USA’s heart of innovation
Long regarded as the industrial powerhouse of the US, Missouri is now proving itself as a global centre of tech excellence
The state of Missouri has been building its technology credentials for decades. However, in recent years it has seen an acceleration of its tech industries, making it one of the most attractive locations for startups and growing organisations in North America. In fact, in March 2022, Meta (formerly known as Facebook) announced it was building its hyperscale data centre in Kansas City, investing at least $800m into the project.
Missouri is firmly committed to the growth of a wide range of ground-breaking sectors, from Fintech, to Agritech, PetTech, Geospatial, Healthtech and many more, they are all thriving across the state. With one of the lowest corporate tax rates in the USA, business-friendly regulatory systems, a robust talent pipeline and a network of support organisations state-wide, Missouri is showing that it is ready to support tech growth across the board
