Intelligent leads
start here

You want qualified leads that stand a real chance of benefiting your community. We help you move from a long list of potential companies to a short list of highly viable and validated leads: companies that are expanding. Companies that are a good fit for your region. Companies that are early enough in the process that they are open to influence their decision-making.

Because modern economic development requires intelligent leads.

Our Approach

We combine cutting-edge technology with big data and talented people to identify and target companies primed for expansion. ROI Research on Investment’s highly viable and validated leads are extracted from a pool of millions of potential companies, down to a short list of targets that meet your criteria.

Our intelligent leads are based on:

  • Trends: companies that are expanding, and industries that are growing.
  • Compatibility: companies that are a good fit for your region.
  • Timing: companies that are evaluating their options and open to influence.
