How it works

As we've already prepared the data for your area, we can spend more time on analysis and identifying the important stories for you to share.

  • 1. We learn about you

    An initial phone or video call to discuss your economic development activities, problems and strategy. This gives us the context for the project and identifies any specific questions that you need answered.

  • 2. The team analysis

    Our local area economists conduct a team analysis of your local economy using data from your economic profile (economy.id) and other sources.

  • 3. We send the report

    Our analysis is shared in a presentation-style report that uses maps, charts and tables to share our conclusions and important insights.

  • 4. We share our insights

    A closing phone or video call to go over the results and reports, talk about your economic development strategy and make sure we have everything covered.
