Over the years, RW Ventures has developed specialized metrics and a sophisticated analytical framework to assess the market potential of urban neighborhoods. These tools, including the innovative analytics developed in the context of the Dynamic Neighborhood Taxonomy project, enable us to identify areas of opportunity for economic development in the inner city that are often overlooked by retailers and other businesses.
Ventures provides a range of analytical products designed to identify the most
promising business opportunities for entire neighborhoods, commercial corridors
or specific sites. For development organizations, we can help identify
the types of economic activity that are most suited for a given area, the
locations with the highest potential for development or the materials for attracting the right new businesses (see our San Antonio reports for an example of this type of product). For businesses, we do specialized urban site selection and sales forecasting models.
Our services help
local governments and community-based organizations design and
implement successful economic development strategies, ranging from
attracting major retailers to working with local entrpreneurs or
establishing local development entities. We also work with
particular businesses (such as retailers, financial institutions and
insurance companies) to enhance their ability to operate profitably in
