Missouri Governor Visits EquipmentShare HQ
The group discussed EquipmentShare’s decision to base its headquarters in Columbia, Mo., rather than Silicon Valley, a hotbed for startups like EquipmentShare. The founders of EquipmentShare spent time building the company at Y Combinator in Silicon Valley shortly after its inception but ultimately decided to bring the business back home to Missouri.
“When you have hardworking Midwesterners that have that humility, integrity, drive and intelligence that we look for—there is no ceiling,” Willy Schlacks said. “It is a massive opportunity. Not only for EquipmentShare but for any company that recognizes that and seeks to empower those individuals and attributes.”
EquipmentShare’s continued growth in Missouri was also a source of discussion, and so was Governor Parson’s efforts to invest in Missouri’s greatest export, the workforce.
“We want these companies to stay here, we want to retain them here,” Governor Parson said.”We want them to grow here.”
