Developmental Economies Group International (DEGI)—

Leaders in Place-Sourced Branding

DEGI understands that communities work not from the outside in but the inside out, so we start by discovering who a community is. Building on this foundation of Story of Place™, DEGI helps communities create true place-sourced branding and brand loyalty that attracts and retains businesses, buyers and well-matched talent. The firm’s work leads to the trifecta of economics: a tax base of businesses; local buyers attached to the products and services that enrich their lives, who, like the businesses, can’t imagine locating anywhere else, and extraordinary talent who also identify with the place and with what it offers, so that they, too, remain in the community or move to it, further contributing to its economic vitality.
