BRDG Park Launches a New Website
At the Danforth Center, we are committed to enhancing the St. Louis region as a world center for plant science. The most visible result of this commitment is the BioResearch & Development Growth (BRDG) Park located on our campus, which is why we are excited to announce the launch of a new BRDG Park website. This new website reflects our BRDG Park community and where it is headed, and showcases the amazing innovation ecosystem here in St. Louis.
Startups Thrive at BRDG Park
BRDG and EDGE@BRDG are helping agtech startups thrive. Our St. Louis ag innovation ecosystem has been cited as a national model of cluster development by the Brookings Institute. When companies become part of our innovation community, they are met with the resources, research and relationships to take great ideas all the way into the hands of farmers. When CoverCress was founded in 2013, they were able to utilize resources in our innovation community to grow their company.
Located in the Heart of Agriculture Production and Innovation

BRDG Park is located in 39 North, a 600-acre innovation district designed to foster collaboration and stimulate investment in bioscience research and commercialization. Our proximity to customers and a robust innovation community make St. Louis the perfect breeding ground for innovation.
