Minnesota Dashboard: 40 quality of life indicators to guide the state  
Presenter: Jeffrey Niblack  
Description: The Minnesota Dashboard present 40 quality of life indicators for the state of Minnesota. The Results Management team at Minnesota Management and Budget developed the Dashboard in partnership with state agencies to ensure that the measures are both relevant for Minnesotans and are consistent with metrics that are meaningful for agencies as well.  Navigating from the Minnesota Dashboard website provides a deep well of data for many of the indicators including demographic breakdowns and trend data.

Presenter: Courtney Overby  
Description: ConnectUP! MN is a replicable and transformational relationship capstone convening for investors and entrepreneurs and entrepreneur ecosystem grounded in inclusive & equitable economic development values.

Community Credit Conditions  
Presenter: Emily Perlmeter  
Description: Access to credit is key to an individual’s financial well-being and ability to participate fully in the economy.  Therefore, understanding the landscape of debt performance and credit access is paramount to understanding the financial and economic state of a community. However, indicators of loan performance are largely unavailable at a county, ZIP or community level. Given the nation’s history of unequal credit access, examination of these issues at a neighborhood level is essential.  The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas’ study on Community Credit Conditions attempts to look at debt performance and access on a neighborhood level, using mapping analysis and charts.

Activating an Ecosystem: How Collaboration Accelerates Impact  
Presenter: Louisa Shepherd  
Description: In the world of economic development, indicators of success exist all around us, from revitalized arts districts, to bustling new food halls, to successful small businesses that anchor communities and create jobs. Often times successes can be spotted everywhere, but measuring them can be a tricky business; systems for collecting and synthesizing the indicators of those successe are often siloed and not shared.  In Memphis, our ecosystem has taken a new approach to measuring successes.  By proactively seeking opportunities to share data and resources, other regions can articulate its collective impact better, and can make better decisions that will benefit the communities we serve.

Getting More Bang for Your Focus Group Buck  
Presenter: Jennifer Anderson-Ochoa  
Description: One of the limitations of using focus groups to gather data is the small sample size. How would you like to reach 45 people per focus group instead of 15? Applied Survey Research will share a methodology we used to triple the sample size and the amount of data collected in a single, town hall-style focus group. 

Implementing Technology Tools for Better Measuring of Wellbeing
Presenter: Emily Neilson-Winkler
