We Get It: Economic Development is Hard

As an economic developer, you want to grow your region’s economy. That means attracting and retaining businesses, focusing on key industries, and communicating your workforce’s talent to government and private partners. To do all that, you need timely data on your local labor market.

The problem is that labor market data is complex, which makes you feel overwhelmed. We believe that you shouldn’t need a PhD in economics to understand your local economy. We also understand that COVID-19 has made it even harder for economic developers to do their jobs. Our PhD economists, data scientists, and strategic planners want to help you grow your community.
