BRDG Park is a place where good ideas become great businesses.

BRDG and EDGE@BRDG serve as home to 16 enterprises, employing 400 people and covering 270,000 square feet. Our companies include startups and mid-stage companies that have grown in the ecosystem as well as international companies that have chosen to establish their North American headquarters in our thriving innovation ecosystem. The tenant community participates in a collaborative task force to enhance networking, health and wellness and business growth.

BRDG Park serves as a vital resource for homegrown startup companies, as well as a beacon for attracting talent and investment from across the globe. Companies interact with leading plant scientists and have access to more than $40M in core technologies at the Danforth Center as well as an on-site workforce training program.

We chose to expand our presence in St. Louis because of its leadership in plant science and commitment to innovation. Dr. Danforth's vision to build an ecosystem in food and agriculture was fostered by stakeholders across the St. Louis community, and Benson Hill is an example of those efforts coming to fruition.
