What do we do?

We partner with economic development organizations and nonprofits to foster inclusive and vibrant communities across the Midwest through research and community-focused programming.

If you are an organization that is passionate about supporting your community and wants to develop programs and provide resources focused on:

  • Addressing the changing needs of the small business and startup community
  • Building more inclusive programs and supporting a more diverse and equitable community
  • Building programs that support the unique challenges of the entire community you serve
  • Advocating for needed policy, programs and initiatives – being the unified voice of the community

We can help!  We LOVE working with people that are strategic, value listening to the needs of community members, and are passionate about building more opportunity in their communities.
