With real world knowledge gained through our decades of work with some of the largest companies in the world, we develop actionable strategies and help communities to win projects.

Economic Development Services

For an economic development organization, winning a project requires not only thoughtfully conducted background research, but the ability to discern which data within the findings is pertinent to the task at hand. Only breadth of experience cultivates that ability - which is why many organizations tap the knowledge of Silverlode professionals in order to position themselves to win widely sought-after projects.

Every community or region is unique, shaped by its history, a complex political environment, and a variety of strengths and weaknesses. As such, we recognize that a cookie-cutter approach can never provide an optimal solution for any community. We deliver realistic, actionable recommendations, communicated clearly and concisely, with demonstrable results for stakeholders. Silverlode provides a broad range of services for state and local governments and other economic development organizations. Some of the ways we help organizations include:

Target Industry Studies

Our target industry studies empower our clients to identify and engage companies.

Comprehensive Economic Development Strategies (CEDS)

We use our proprietary methodology to obtain the CEDS certification for clients.
