Professional services, tailored to each community

We offer our clients a wide variety of services, from short-term technical assistance in the form of speeches or workshops, to targeted, in-depth analysis into their community’s most pressing challenges. We pride ourselves on our commitment to understanding each community’s unique challenges and character. That means we spend time on the ground in almost every community we work with, walking the neighborhoods and talking to stakeholders to understand the full context on which we base our analysis or recommendations. Reach out today for a 30 minute consultation about our services at info@placeeconomics.com.
