Business Organization Consulting
Chambers & Business Improvement Districts
Capstone’s team has a proven track record of helping local business organizations such as Chambers of Commerce, Business Improvement Districts, Industry Associations, and other community groups develop strategic plans and amplify their voice in state and local government.
We work with organizations to draft their short- and long-term strategic plans. At Capstone, we go beyond just producing a broad vision and goal – Our plans allow organizations to take reasonable actionable steps to achieve their goals.
As part of our strategic plan process, we listen to key members of the organization’s business partners and community stakeholders. Then, we incorporate this with the latest data and economic research, focus groups, and consumer polling before reaching a consensus on the organizational goals.
If your organization needs bandwidth and expertise to implement any action items, Capstone can assist with staffing challenges, community membership, engagement, customer acquisition, events, or support with issues related to business management, advancement in technology, energy, and transportation planning.
