On March 6, 12 AgTech companies from Israel landed in St. Louis for a day-long dive into all things startup. The delegation was organized by Global STL, a project of BioSTL, in partnership with the Government of Israel Economic Mission and BIRD Foundation (the Israel‐U.S. Binational Research & Development Fund). The goal? To impress upon these innovative companies the opportunities available to them in the Midwest.The delegates spent the day meeting with corporate and community leaders, hearing about the St. Louis’ startup ecosystem and touring facilities (the majority of the day’s events took place at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center). It was a busy visit–and a successful one. We caught up with GlobalSTL Lead Vijay Chauhan and a few of the delegates after the visit to hear what the companies and St. Louis stand to gain from it.
