Forming an Alliance to Increase Economic Performance

Praxis Strategy Group and Joel Kotkin are working with the Economic Alliance of Northern Santa Barbara County (EconNSBC) to create a high-performance community ready to compete in the future economy on a global scale. EconNSBC is a grassroots effort led by a diverse group of private sector and community leaders committed to leveraging regional assets and talent to support existing chamber and local economic development efforts.

Committed to leveraging regional assets and talent to support existing chamber and local economic development efforts

The EconNSBC identified a portfolio of strategies necessary to address economic challenges and create a more robust economy:

  • Restore a pro-growth, job-centric economy by creating a more business-friendly environment, streamlining permitting processes and balancing regulations with development needs.
  • Enhance regional coordination by galvanizing efforts of business, government, education, and nonprofit sectors to tackle complex problems or take advantage of opportunities that transcend individual communities or businesses.
  • Mobilize industry sector teams to coordinate and accelerate opportunistic initiatives within and among industry sectors/clusters.
