making sense of place economics
Compelling business cases for local investment
More than ever, making the case for public investment to support place economies requires both robust evidence and effective advocacy. GENECON has a distinguished national track record in applying advanced appraisal techniques in preparing business cases for investment in complex capital projects and local economic growth programmes.
Creative plans for local growth
Place economies are constantly changing. Imaginative yet realistic plans for local growth are central to capturing the interest of communities and investors, public and private. GENECON devises creative strategies to guide local growth and place-changing capital investment, delivering dynamic, entrepreneurial and sustainable place economies.
Re-thinking local economic growth
The dynamics of place economics requires continual refresh of public policy. Understanding 'what works' is essential in promoting innovative policy and best practice. GENECON leads policy development and evaluation across all aspects of place economics, helping to refine economic programmes, measure impacts and define what works in achieving local growth more efficiently.
Entrepreneurial delivery of local growth
Future delivery of local growth and place-making needs to achieve ‘more for less’. Local investment plans and asset management strategies need to make sense in value for money terms. The response must be nimble and entrepreneurial. GENECON provides flexible resource, including interim management, to support investment planning and organisational change management.
