Explanation of this custom search tool

This tool makes it easy to search across a specific community of related websites, such as economic development agencies for a particular state or region, or similar types of professional services.

This eliminates myriad WWW search results unrelated to this niche, or the need for duplicate searches across such sites separately.

This makes it easy to search press releases across many related organizations at the same time as other related content, such as later references to an investment project after it is announced.

For example, this page serves the community of executives and business advisors who may be seeking information about specific aspects of doing business in a particular region, but who need to find and compare information from multiple locations or service providers.
