Company profile

Smart Growth Analytics is a professional economic research consultancy specialising in the provision of intelligence to inform evidence-based planning, and decision-making, at the local area level. The company was formed by Jim Plunkett-Cole in 2011, during some of the toughest economic conditions ever experienced in the developed world. This hugely challenging economic operating environment, where resources to support growth and development are increasingly scarce, sets the context for the ambitions of Smart Growth.

Our work seeks to ensure that our clients achieve the highest possible levels of business and economic growth, with least possible inputs of resources. We do this through the development and application of evidence-based knowledge and intelligence.

We continuously innovate our knowledge-base to ensure we provide the most contemporary and relevant information and intelligence on all issues surrounding local area business and enterprise, entrepreneurship and economic growth.
