Enterprise Community Partners built Opportunity360 to be a powerful community development resource, but the innovative minds at Enterprise couldn’t help but imagine what more it could be.
When Enterprise launched Opportunity360 in 2017, they aimed to improve users understanding of communities and the conditions that help people grow and thrive. The tool pulled data from multiple sources into a report that could be generated for every census tract in the country. While an immediate hit, users of Opportunity360 soon wanted more.
“They wanted a tool that could be more interactive, that could provide better context for the data presented, and that could allow users to compare communities along a variety of indicators.”

Enter mySidewalk. Aligned in their mission to use data to drive innovation, mySidewalk was a natural partner. Together, Enterprise and mySidewalk built on the tool’s early success to deliver a solution that would respond quickly and intuitively to new data sets to provide a better picture of change within and across neighborhoods. The current Opportunity60 Community Dashboard tells the story of community—the strengths, the challenges, and the opportunities.
