StateBook for Site Selection

Site selectors may confidentially search and compare locations by county, MSA or EDO, and create detailed reports using StateBook's data aggregated from dozens of reliable, independent, third-party databases. Site Selectors may also anonymously contact EDOs directly through StateBook to ask questions and request additional information.

StateBook for EDOs

EDOs who join as StateBook Members may upload their own information, photos and more to communicate the unique benefits of their region to site selectors, complimenting the robust, independent StateBook Stats and data tools. Since more than 90% of site selection decisions are made online, before an EDO is ever contacted, StateBook provides a powerful tool to state your case - even before you know your region is being considered for investment.
