Midwest Focus

Rebuilding and Retooling for a New Economy

Our nationally recognized team is based out of Madison, and focused on helping Midwest communities and businesses reposition economically to build place-based, sustainable pathways to a vibrant future. Applying a range of visionary economic repositioning strategies, our work is making a world of difference to clients across the heartland.

Many parts of the Midwest grew up on agriculture and manufacturing–and today must find a new place in a wider world economy. We employ everything from public-private partnerships, innovation infrastructure, food and energy systems building, and industry cluster development–to help retool forward-thinking communities, regions and businesses in the Midwest to capture a strong new position. Our efforts consistently deliver added value, and bring positive changes to the way people live and work.
