PLACE: Georgia

The PLatform for Advancing Community Economies (PLACE) Database was created at UNC Chapel Hill by PIs Maryann Feldman and (until 2018) Nichola Lowe. PLACE Database is currently housed under the CREATE Research Center at the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise at UNC Chapel Hill. The UNC Renaissance Computing Institute hosts the MySQL database on local servers and maintains the site.

As part of the team that developed this relational database, including using over 30 sources to triangulate longitudinal data on entrepreneurship in regional economies and develop database fields and search methodologies, Paige is excited to begin replicating and expanding this work to cover the state of Georgia.
