Referral Center Success Spotlight: Economic Gardening

By: NetWork Kansas

Economic Gardening is an entrepreneurial approach to economic development that seeks to grow the local economy from within.  Its premise is that local entrepreneurs create the companies that bring new wealth and economic growth to a region in the form of jobs, increased revenues, and a vibrant local business sector. 

Economic Gardening leverages sophisticated corporate databases, geographic information systems, and digital marketing tools to help Kansas Companies better compete online. Manufacturers, service providers, and retailers that have a web presence and do business regionally or even nationally should consider Economic Gardening. The NetWork Kansas referral center has a national strategic research team leader on staff who can guide you through the entire process.

Recent feedback from a client shows the power of this program:

"Remarkable, Outstanding, Professional, Detailed, Above and Beyond are ALL thoughts that come to mind when I take a moment to review the information that was provided to me through Economic Gardening," wrote Randy McDonald of Mid Star Lab, Inc. | Capitol Orthopedic. "But it’s not limited to those accolades alone. In recent meetings, I’ve discussed the information and data we’ve received and I find myself bragging about the team that was assigned to us.  The entire process was extremely educational, productive and I feel over the next few months we will only scratch the surface of how it will impact our year. I anticipate, with the information we’ve received and the thoughts and remarks shared, our business will see an increase of about 25-35% this year alone. Not to mention being set up for future successes. 

"... Economic Gardening is a game changer for us.  Every experience, from the initial phone calls diving into our business to the follow-up calls regarding the data that was provided, was simply awesome.  Great, knowledgeable team."
