At CIC, we tend to use lofty language. We talk about “fixing the world through innovation” and improving the human condition. Our goal is to create communities that connect resources, talent, and ideas in order to speed progress, and we came to St. Louis to do just that. But in light of recent events, I’ve found myself wondering: how do those ideas play out on the ground? How do concepts that serve innovation and design thinking improve people’s lives?
CIC St. Louis, St. Louis’ largest innovation community offering co- working, offices and labs, and StartEDIN, a community inclusive to Edinburgh which is focused on promoting the city’s dynamic tech ecosystem, announced today the creation of EDIMO, an innovative arrangement to reduce barriers for Edinburgh companies to enter the US market and for Missouri companies to enter the European market via Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh.
