Economic gardening

Saturday, August 13, 2005

The city of Littleton, Colorado, under the economic development leadership of Chris Gibbons, has developed an economic strategy that Chris calls "economic gardening".

The idea is to provide a new type of information-based entrepreneurial infrastructure to firms within a regional economy. By assisting firms in this way, economic developers can promote growth efficiently. The city government's job is to provide the right tools and environment for these businesses to succeed.

Here is a good article on the Littleton economic gardening strategy. To learn more about this approach, visit the Littleton web site. It's also a good idea to subscribe to mailing list.
