This directory selectively highlights economic development organizations and professional service providers.  Try our custom Google site search, too.

The knowledge shared through this website makes it easy to research potential business locations and services.  If you use their services, please thank them for their support of our research and referral work. 

The logos or text below link to GUIDE Area Profiles or Service Profiles as an executive summary of services, along with contact details and website links for details.  This makes it easy to recognize when those who support our work may have relevant capabilities to offer.

Our services to executives are free because of the professionals who choose to support our work.  This helps them to reach relevant executives who would value their service capabilities, but who might otherwise be unaware of their services.  We appreciate their support of our independent referral work.

Economic development representatives are encouraged to participate in our GUIDE Network Survey process so that we can maintain timely knowledge of their areas.  These Survey responses about their areas can optionally be published on the relevant pages and highlighted by links here and on our related website which offers additional market research capabilities more selectively.  This website is more comprehensive.
