A new approach to urban economic development: From research to implementation

Together, ICIC and Next Street deliver the knowledge and the know-how to achieve sustainable economic and job growth. ICIC's one-of-a-kind research and industry cluster analysis inform long-term strategies that make the most of local assets. ICIC has also developed a reputation for bringing city officials, business executives and community leaders together to effectively design private sector-led strategies that capitalize on a community's competitive advantage.
Next Street provides the hands-on advice and access to financing that cities and institutions need to expand and create jobs. Next Street helps cities and institutions do more by improving strategic focus, organizational strength, communications and implementation.
