MetroEdge tailors smart economic development strategies for specific, local places. Our approach identifies assets, inspires potential investors to take a different view of disinvested markets and helps communities take the reins of their economic futures.
We offer guidance and support for organizations that want to revitalize business districts using reliable metrics. We help neighborhoods, public officials and investors understand emerging markets, prepare for development and access the marketplace.
