Sledgehammers breaking through a mock wall signaled the construction start of the new "Geosaurus, Powered by Bayer" Innovation Resource Center at T-REX, a St. Louis based advanced technology incubator. Geosaurus will serve as the latest pillar in St. Louis' efforts to become the global leader in geospatial intelligence, excellence and expertise.
Last year, T-REX was awarded a $500,000 grant from Bayer to support the creation of a new geospatial innovation space that would be located inside the nonprofit's downtown St. Louis building. To accommodate "Geosaurus, Powered by Bayer", crews are renovating T-REX's entire 14,760-square-foot fourth floor.
With an emphasis on entrepreneurship, innovation, workforce development, partnerships with area universities and training programs, Geosaurus will provide collaborative content and programming for advancing the geospatial industry.
