ECONOMIC COMPETITIVENESS

San Francisco, CA

Competitiveness is the mix of factors that determines a market’s attractiveness as a place for private investment and largely determines its quality as a place to live. Policies that encourage private investment coupled with public investment in key areas such as infrastructure and human capital development (workforce and education) communities can fundamentally shift their market position and promote private sector job growth and investment.

This practice specializes in providing pointed analyses to develop industry clusters, developing overarching economic strategies based on data, best practices and community goals, and examining and redacting specific policies and incentives to assess their impacts on economic growth.
