About This Site

This site was launched by the University of Wisconsin – Extension, Center for Community & Economic Development.  It was developed in cooperation with community economic development educators and downtown professionals from numerous states.  The site is intended to provide existing and prospective entrepreneurs with innovative ideas for their downtowns, and provide local economic development leaders with innovative ideas for their business expansion and recruitment efforts.  Finally, the site is designed to serve as a companion resource to the Downtown & Business District Market Analysis toolbox.
