Business, Economic and Entrepreneur Development
Business Development is about sustainable, strategic growth. In today’s world, development is a blend of already identified goals and objectives that trend toward sustained improvement. Defined goals and objectives are combined with understanding the current position, identifying new opportunities, and mapping a plan to get from today to tomorrow. During this process, monitoring and feedback provide opportunities for course adjustments, keeping the business on track in a rapidly changing marketplace.
Economic Development fosters the creation of wealth by connecting together people, ideas, and capital to create value in the marketplace. There are a variety of ways to measure this value including number of startup businesses, increased jobs, return on investment through attracting business expansions, and other metrics.
Numerous activities can be implemented to accomplish Economic Development objectives. Fostering entrepreneurial activities (such as startups and business incubation) are powerful ways to execute economic growth at the local level. Another way is to attract business expansions from other places – both domestic and international (soft landings).
Although economic development activity is typically tied to a particular geographic area such as a metropolitan region, that geography may be further defined by the Scope of Work that an entity may choose to work within. On a smaller scale than the entire metro area, Innovation Districts development is a way of focusing on providing a more localized economic impact.
Innovation Districts are unique developments that provide better places to live, work, and play. There may be multiple Innovation Districts within a given metro area, and each Innovation District in turn focuses on economic development activity in a place-specific way by creating community-authentic solutions. See our “Innovation Districts Development Services” for more information on how creating these live-work-play spaces can have a positive impact on your region.
