Referral Center Success Spotlight: Notes to Self and 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.
