Duration of Project: March 2017 - August 2017

Description of Work Provided

The Colorado Springs Chamber and EDC selected Garner Economics to identify ways to leverage the area’s strong quality of place and its well-developed IT; aerospace and defense; and health industries to remain “top of mind” as a place for these and other talent-intensive industries to locate and thrive.

Project Results

Winning in Colorado Springs: A Transformative Strategy for Positive Change provides a set of recommendations to grow the area’s economic development tools and resources and align public- and private-sector priorities around three core targets (Sports Medicine & Related Health Services; Professional, Scientific & Technical Services; and Aviation & Specialty Manufacturing) and efforts to grow the local “Experience Economy.” It also tasks the Chamber and EDC with rethinking its approach to economic development by advocating for transformational initiatives that will have a positive, game-changing effect on the area by creating long-term economic impact.
