We work with communities to deploy economic development incentives as a means to achieve targeted development goals. Smart Incentives helps economic development organizations make sound decisions by instituting incentive programs that are both effective and responsible. Here’s how we do it:
incentive offerings and program design
the Smart Incentives 4×4 framework for program management
access to high-quality business intelligence, data, and analytical methods to guide decisions
evaluations and reporting on program results
