SAMCEDA Releases Beacon Economics Special Reports on San Mateo County

SAMCEDA and The EVRE (Economic Vitality Research and Education) Foundation have formally engaged Beacon Economics to perform a multi-phase Economic Analysis of San Mateo County. The project scope encompasses a comprehensive study of economic indicators, industry-cluster analyses, county demographic trends, historical and forward economic movements, and actionable economic development strategies. The project, which will commence February 1, 2010 with a final report and presentation at the SAMCEDA Annual Meeting June 21st, will be one of the most comprehensive analyses of the San Mateo County economy to date. In addition to providing businesses, municipalities and communities with pertinent economic information, it will serve as the basis for launching follow-on, targeted economic development initiatives on the part of SAMCEDA. SAMCEDA has been active in both county and regional economic development the past year, participating in the Bay Area Economic Recovery Workplan coalition and collaborating with the San Francisco Center for Economic Development in exploring value-add development opportunities in niche segments on the Peninsula.
