BusinessFlare® is an awesome collaborative enterprise that approaches economic design in a way that envisions each community’s potential through a refreshing and unique experience based on authenticity, place brand and feasibility. We are unlike any consultants you have ever met.

We design economic spaces for everybody.

We do this with hands dirty, on the ground work in the real world, an approach we call Street Economics™. We do it by starting with the reality of a place, rather than the idea of a place.

The BusinessFlare® approach is based on realistic actions to improve the six (6) areas of economic design influence:

  1. #RealityCheck: The economic assessment.
  2. #EasyButton: The common business climate themes.
  3. #Connections: What connects people to place.
  4. #Opportunities: Build consensus and target resources.
  5. #Values: Implementation management.
  6. #Balance: Feasibility, efficiency and identity.

“Our approach is new and fresh and has proven successful in communities and cities that want more than just the status quo. It incorporates knowledge and experience with the energy of the millennial and adaptability to a fast-changing world. We don’t just believe in our approach, we live it, we dance it. It connects communities through truth, respect and knowledge. The old way may have been good enough, but good enough is just not good enough anymore. Communities have too much at stake as investment dollars, talent and momentum quickly seek out areas with promise and potential.

Envisioning your community’s potential should be a refreshing and unique experience, not the mediocre reuse of the same old techniques and repetitive, uninspired SWOT exercises. While the old ways are safe, they are also unremarkable. The problem with the status quo is it doesn’t often connect to the truths that are needed to truly find the will to succeed, and at the end of the day having the will to succeed is more important than anything else. We want to help you find that will through truth, respect, knowledge and innovation.”
