Build a strong community

To be successful, economic developers need to understand their community’s strengths—whether it’s an educated and diverse workforce, affordable housing, lower cost of living, great transportation, or a thriving local economy. Leaders can use location intelligence to visualize and analyze business and community growth potential, combining data about demographics, lifestyle, and spending. This strategic approach helps communities create jobs, identify opportunities for economic gardening, and attract new business.
