The Zone

Nuhanse Network has carefully distilled the Zone development process into a series of reliably-successful steps. With proper implementation, virtually any jurisdiction can begin to enjoy the economic security and growth that comes with innovative Zone policies.

Once an area has been confirmed as eligible for Zone status, the process begins:

Step 1

Connect With Communities

Nuhanse Network has found that the concept of “leading with a gift” works wonders — after all, the prospect of giving and receiving an offering of value is universal. This approach works only when parties are treated as equals, without condescension.
Leading with a gift helps to establish rapport with local populations, who may initially view the concept of innovative Zones with apprehension.
The concept of leading with a gift dates back to the days of Phoenician trade around the entire Mediterranean. Merchants would establish new trade routes by first forming alliances with affected locals. While the Phoenicians would leave gifts on beaches, Nuhanse Network has brought the concept into the 21st century with modernized offerings of economic initiatives and charitable efforts.

Step 2


Once residents are open to the concept of innovative Zone development, local governments must be brought into the fold. A delicate balance must be struck so as to win favor while also gaining approval to break away as much as possible.
At this stage, there is always potential for push back. Nuhanse Network mitigates this based on our experiences with powerful stakeholders and organizations like the Institute for Competitive Governance. With the right approach, a healthy public-private partnership can be established, which will result in faster development of critical infrastructure with far less red tape.

Step 3


With both population and public leadership in our corner, the next step is exploring every possibility to determine the best path forward. This takes the form of a feasibility study.
The Nuhanse Network team and our partners have conducted hundreds of these evaluations. This is the step where weaknesses emerge and solutions are found; the information found in the finished report will determine future Zone investments and legislative action.

Step 4


Once the groundwork has been laid, a legislative outline is constructed. This serves as the basis for how the prospective Zone will be formed and developed. Nuhanse Network offers templates based on research into best practices found among the thousands of Zones we’ve studied.
In late 2018, Nuhanse Network CEO Joseph McKinney began writing a comprehensive guidebook on innovative Zone policy. Drawing from the many examples Nuhanse Network has examined as well as various investment strategies, the book will be the first of its kind, offering in written guidance what is currently available only as our flagship service.

Step 5


The heart of success in any innovative Zone is trade.
As Nuhanse Network drafts the business plan for the prospective Zone, business regulations will be closely considered by our team of expert consultants. Each proposed system will be pitted against a custom economic model — the victor will therefore be the objectively best fit for the business plan.

Step 6


With every contingency anticipated, every nuance planned for, the time arrives when Nuhanse Network begins the process of implementation. Our partners are no strangers to large-scale fulfillment — in fact, some even have experience with Zone planning in areas with populations exceeding a half million residents.
No matter the size or scope, Nuhanse Network never loses track of what’s most important — the stakeholders. During the implementation phase, care is taken to avoid disrupting the lifestyles of local residents.
