Evolution St. Louis got an innovation award from St. Louis Mayor, Lyda Krewson. The award, given at the Mayor’s business celebration luncheon, recognised the Evolution St. Louis’s efforts to establish St. Louis as a start-up and technology hub. Evolution St. Louis is a high-tech knitting facility that uses cutting-edge 3D knitting technology.
