Data for Good: Driving Prosperity in the St. Louis Region

Tuesday, March 28, 2023 | 7:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Knight Hall, Emerson Auditorium
Knight Hall and Bauer Hall, John M. Olin School of Business

Many local organizations focus on driving innovation and economic prosperity in the St. Louis area. To date, there hasn’t been a data-driven methodology to support these initiatives. So, the question becomes, can data and technology be used to improve outcomes?

WashU Olin’s Center for Analytics and Business Insights (CABI) has developed a data-driven decision-making framework to inform strategies and tactics to target best-fit prospective companies, best position St. Louis to those companies and successfully steward their decision to select St. Louis. In the process, CABI uncovered additional opportunities to help the region flourish more broadly.

Join us as we bring together those focused on driving prosperity in the St. Louis region to learn about using data and technology to improve outcomes that enhance the lives of everyone in the community. This conference includes three robust panel discussions on opportunities uncovered in CABI’s research, including how our learnings support building the local innovation community and enhance the prosperity of all.
