STLMade is a movement within the St. Louis metro that shines a light on the amazing things our innovative, tenacious, big-hearted people are doing. It’s supported by a region-wide collaboration of residents, local leaders, institutions, organizations, businesses big and small, and nonprofits helping to tell our story that St. Louis is a place where you can start up, stand out and stay.

Greater St. Louis Inc. 

The STLMade movement is an initiative of Greater St. Louis, Inc., which brings together business and civic leaders to create jobs and opportunities, expand inclusive economic growth and improve St. Louis’ global competitiveness.
