Customized Research

AVALANCHE KNOWS THAT DATA BECOMES POWERFUL WHEN IT SUPPORTS YOUR COMMUNITY’S STORY. Forget academic studies on your economy. Data alone won’t convince companies to expand their operations in your community or inspire the next big entrepreneurial idea. Our research illuminates facts about your community that will resonate with target audiences and demonstrate how well you stack up against your competitors.

We produce “ah-ha!” moments for our clients. Using our suite of research products, we transform our findings into messages that market your community, improve public policy decisions, and prioritize projects.

At Avalanche, we keep a daily watch on industry trends and regularly interview executives and site selectors about the marketplace. Over the past two decades, we have refined our proprietary research methodologies that are tailored for economic development organizations. We design research tools to precisely identify your community’s competitive advantages, sales messages, and program needs.

Avalanche will not only get you the data you need, we translate that information into currency for your community. Our data and expertise is often featured in respected news outlets and trade publications:
