Our mission is to promote inclusive innovation and collaboration for all people in the St Louis Region and beyond, by engaging in efforts such as improving access to high quality Internet connectivity, engaging in the research and development of advanced information communication technology (ICT) services, and related community, educational and entrepreneurial endeavors, and developing an Internet Exchange Point in St Louis.


Our first project is our Internet Exchange Point in St Louis, developed in partnership with MidWest-IX.

We expect to engage in future projects in one or more of these areas:

  • Addressing the digital divide, especially as it related to high quality Internet connectivity. We are interested in partnering with organizations or individuals working to improve connectivity in public spaces or underserved neighborhoods.
  • Enabling and supporting connectivity for innovation neighborhoods.
  • Enabling and supporting Smart City infrastructure, projects, or research in the St Louis region, e.g. connectivity for Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

If you are interested in collaborating with us in one of these areas, please contact us!
