This Community As a Start Up (CASU) project is spearheaded by the Coastal Bend Business Innovation Center as a tool to spur local entrepreneurial activity one community at a time.
For each community we will engage, we first present background data as a tool to illuminate its economic and business conditions, as well as its entrepreneurial potential and barriers.
The goal of the data analytics is to support local economic development through actionable community collaboration.
Caveat: Data without context is meaningless;
without context, data conveys no information or knowledge.
