(St. Louis Post-Dispatch) Ag firm’s billion-dollar success validates St. Louis’ two-decade-old biotech vision

More than twenty years ago, Bill Danforth created a vision of St. Louis as a leader in bioscience. Today, success stories like Benson Hill becoming a publicly listed company continue to validate that vision.

"The region owes a debt of gratitude to Bill Danforth for creating that culture. We also owe it to him to keep investing in his vision,” writes David Nicklaus in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
