Shared prosperity starts with a shared understanding

You work tirelessly to attract businesses, residents and investment, grow your workforce, and deliver transformative projects. But when you are in the trenches working for your community, you have little time to see the big picture, share the effectiveness of your efforts, or tell the story of your economic impact and upcoming projects. mySidewalk’s Economic Development Dashboards help you easily share that message. Whether your message is for an elected official, a community member, an existing business, a prospective employer, or an investor our platform has the tools you need to communicate an interactive, data-driven story.

Local policy has a hard time scaling across communities because no one is ever talking about and measuring the same indicators. mySidewalk’s ability to deliver our Economic and Innovation Performance Dashboard for 100 cities got us to scale instantly. They can now measure their interventions against the same indicators and share what’s working.

Opportunity Zones

Powerful new legislation has the potential to attract tax-advantaged capital to your community. Make sure that your community can harness this capital to its benefit. Whether you have already defined projects in need of capital or are just beginning to develop a strategy to deliver community benefit with outside investment, mySidewalk’s Opportunity Zone Dashboards are here to help. We’ll help you understand the differences between your opportunity zones and the rest of your city and region, identify acute challenges that people in your opportunity zones face, and market your opportunity zones and projects to outside investors.
