Collaborative Economics acts as your strategic partner, combining our talents with yours

to create breakthroughs in your community, region or state that would not otherwise be possible.

Civic Entrepreneurs

Collaborative Economics' signature expertise is in mobilizing "civic entrepreneurs" for action--a distinctive kind of individual who combines the passion and persistence of a business entrepreneur with the vision and commitment of a transformational civic leader.

COECON is nationally recognized for having worked with thousands of civic entrepreneurs throughout more than 25 states over two decades. We know how to identify, recruit, and support these kinds of leaders as they work to transform regional economies. We help them to develop breakthrough ideas, conduct innovative analyses, and form action partnerships that deliver results. We have begun to document their successes, and describe their traits and practices in two books that have been published in five languages worldwide.
