An Inclusive Economic Transition
As our global economy undergoes dramatic transformation, what will make a region competitive in the next economy, and how can we ensure the transition includes all residents, all businesses and all neighborhoods?
We helped the Sacramento region forge a new path of economic opportunity with ScaleUP Sacramento: An Economic Action Agenda.
The data-driven, actionable agenda builds on previous work and the levers that drive the Sacramento region. It presents priority strategies built on the region’s unique assets and identifies promising initiatives to implement coordinated, strategic investments. This living document, meant to be continually updated, is the starting point for even broader, inclusive collaboration to enhance Sacramento's economic future.
Our roles, working with RW Ventures, included leading stakeholder engagement (business community, neighborhood leaders, planning leaders, emerging industries), developing a detailed Spatial Efficiency Analysis about the Sacramento region's ability to accommodate new major industries (access to people capital, access to transportation infrastructure, available land sizes), and forming inclusive economic development strategies that focus public and private resources towards minority neighborhoods that are currently underserved.
