Migration and regional assets survey
To shape the region into a more attractive place to live and strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem, northwest Missouri (NWMO) leaders wanted to understand regional assets. Leaders also wanted to know if COVID-19 could make the region a more attractive place to live. MU Exceed partnered with the Community Foundation of Northwest Missouri's Maximize NWMO Regional Vitality Initiative to conduct a survey to address these questions.
Economic impact of marina in Warsaw, Missouri
Exceed analyzed the long-term economic benefits of a proposed marina to the city of Warsaw and surrounding Benton County. The marina is part of several planned transportation improvements in Warsaw that will increase tourism, housing and available business space in the downtown area. The marina economic impact analysis was included in a BUILD grant application the city submitted to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
