The goal of this project was to assist the Nantucket Island Center for Entrepreneurship (NICE) to benchmark businesses on Nantucket, and to identify and measure the metrics used to define success in each sector of Nantucket’s economy. We identified, refined, and integrated a wide range of business listings and economic data to create a Composite Business List (CBL). We also developed a survey for Nantucket’s Chamber of Commerce members to understand the impact of Nantucket’s economic fluctuations on entrepreneurship, and the metrics used for success by businesses in various sectors. We determined that Chamber membership underrepresents the trades and recommended that NICE develop outreach and survey tools to better understand the needs of this portion of Nantucket’s economy.
