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
The Intro Incentives course addresses why we use incentives, how to use them effectively, and ways to manage incentives to achieve expected outcomes.read more
