"I’m very familiar with the great work provided by EDFRI, having been associated with the organization and its principal(s) for over 25 years. Through its cutting-edge work in the areas of economic development and redevelopment, I would strongly recommend EDFRI to other municipal leaders who need external services in the design and execution of economic development initiatives."
"Under the leadership of Scott Gibbs, EDFRI was selected by the City of Newport to manage the conceptualization, design, and capitalization of the $8 million Innovate Newport project. This project entailed the repurposing of a vacant, historic elementary school into an innovation hub and co-work facility. I am pleased to endorse EDFRI’s services."
"As a construction professional in the Rhode Island and SE Massachusetts marketplace, I’ve had the pleasure of working directly and indirectly with Scott Gibbs at Economic Development Foundation of RI – Highland on multiple real estate and construction developments over the past 20 years. Scott offers his clients and business partners valuable real estate expertise. Scott has many strengths including managing complex real estate and capital structures, access, and connections to local and state resources to streamline successful deal flow and to top it off an impeccable reputation with and in the business community. I would highly recommend Scott Gibbs to any business owner looking to hire Scott and his firm for their real estate needs."
I have known Scott for close to 25 years now.

As President of the Burrillville Economic Development Partnership I have relied on Scott’s expertise in the commercial real estate market and his knowledge of local politics here in Burrillville with the marketing of Commerce Industrial Park as well as other additional projects we have been looking at to help benefit the town of Burrillville. I highly recommend Scott which is why we continue to him as our consultant for the Burrillville Economic Development partnership.
