“Knowing is not enough;
we must apply. 
Willing is not enough;
we must do.”

– Goethe

If your region is struggling to create good jobs, keep talented youth, attract new high-skilled workers and residents, and compete in today’s internet-based economy, don’t give up hope. ViTAL Economy has helped declining regional economies around the globe ignite sustainable regional development and a bright future.

VE partners with regional economies to enable them to become winners, not victims, of the global economy. We use an extensive knowledge transfer program that includes:

  • A proven process for community economic development recognized by NADO and other government agencies
  • A blueprint for success involving three structured phases
  • A set of services that provide the tools to transform your regional economy
  • Long-term executive coaching to build local capacity
  • Development of an expanded base of regional leaders

Over the years, we’ve honed our economic development process to create the VE Journey. We help your region benchmark key economic and lifestyle indicators to understand where you are today. Then, we work with your leaders to create a vision and a sense of urgency, so you know where you are and where you want to go. Finally, we help you develop regional economic development strategies that allow you to achieve your goals and vision.

Unlike other consultants, we don’t create a report and leave. We guide you through the process, helping your area build the necessary leadership skills and entities to succeed. We show you how working together achieves more than working in silos or focusing on narrow competitive interests that are destined to fail. Working cooperatively, your region will create a larger “economic pie’ that expands resources and provides more opportunities for all.

Don’t give up hope. Contact VE or 410-321-1484 today to learn more about how we can help your community
grow and prosper.
