We are a boutique firm with a highly specialized practice. Our clients include municipal and state government departments, trade associations, and private sector companies.

We specialize in commercial music economic development studies and industrial strategy development; public policy development and comprehensive implementation plans, public-private partnership strategies; data-driven market research, benchmarking, surveys, and analytics.

Here are some of the things we do:

  • Custom, comprehensive studies of current music-related economic development initiatives and recommendations for changes, including incentives, financial allocation/investments, channel/partner/product flow, industry & government relations, and personnel/other resource allocation
  • Work closely with senior management to determine new set of achievable goals for milestone dates
  • Data-driven comparative market research to leverage untapped best practices utilized in other cities or municipalities
  • Thorough analysis of all current assets to build solid foundation for custom strategic plan using the resources available
  • Using all of the above and decades of our in-the-trenches experience, we build a highly specific roadmap that gives you all the actions, step-by-step, to take you from here to there.
