Practice Areas

Economic Development

LSI’s economic development and social impact practice areas focus first and foremost on creating jobs, and we begin by setting a target for the number and type of jobs that need to  be created. This is unusual amongst practitioners, but is the cornerstone of our commitment to our clients and the underpinning of our execution. 

Equally important, LSI’s team seeks to be strategically invested with the community’s stakeholders. This not only creates jobs but generates career-long pathways that break the cycles of intergenerational poverty and never-ending social programs.  Our solutions are robust and designed to create opportunities within the reach of those seeking a bright and rewarding career solution. 

LSI works with Federal, State, and Municipal entities, along with academia, nonprofits, and international organizations, and we strive to bring the vision, ingenuity, and expertise to the client. From the simple to the complex in economic development and social impact, LSI provides a solution development methodology that has become the hallmark of our work. With 50 years of experience, LSI has gained valuable insights into the dynamics that shape economic growth
