This free, half-hour presentation walks you through the process of modeling the economic impact of a new business location and explains its importance. After walking through the considerations of these studies and a case study, the final section of the presentation features Q&A with our hosts.

  • Why would you perform an economic impact analysis for a new business location?
    • Demonstrate the value to a region in terms of jobs and taxes
    • Garner support from public stakeholders
    • Evaluate and plan projects and workforce development programs
  • What insight can you gain from modeling?
  • Who is the audience for this type of analysis?
  • How do you set up an analysis of a new business location?
    • Construction impacts
    • Operations impacts

We also discuss a case study example examining the economic impact of the Lowe’s Design Center Tower project in Charlotte, NC.
