Local is Best

keyboard with enter key replaced with buy keyLocal can be best when companies are buying components or sub-assemblies. But local can also be best when non-competitive companies work with one another to build confidence to change, whether work-culture, people skills, systemization on the shop-floor or the adoption of new technology. We have brought local companies together with four groups so far, collaborating for Smart People, Smart Business and Smart Technology in order to leverage their competitive advantage. The local nature of these interactions, the privacy and confidentiality and the absence of competitors and sales-people are the main elements that make these groups different from any other economic development initiative.
