Development Strategies Group
Development Strategies Group (DSG), headquartered in Cincinnati, is an economic development consulting firm that helps clients identify and secure incentives offered by government agencies to promote business expansion and job retention. Home to half a century of government and economic development experience, the firm has the knowledge necessary to identify, negotiate and win incentives to reduce project costs.

Our process. DSG familiarizes itself with the client and its needs, applies its knowledge and experience to identify incentives and programs available, assists in completing applications for incentives, negotiates with state and local government officials on the client’s behalf and secures approvals for their projects. DSG can also link clients to the resources necessary to ensure agreement compliance throughout the life of the project.

Our services. While new business attraction projects garner the majority of the news accounts, DSG remains focused on business growth where growth most frequently occurs – existing business expansions, consolidations, relocations as well as mergers and acquisitions. More specifically, DSG has experience with job creation and retention tax credits, loans, grants, and tax increment financing.

Our difference. DSG’s blend of economic development and government relations experience uniquely position our firm to aggressively pursue incentives from issuing authorities while concurrently building political support for the project among elected officials. This book-end approach is a winning strategy that sets DGS apart.
