Why it works

We put people first.
We know spaces are nothing without the people that invest in them and bring them to life. Every decision we make is focused on meeting the needs of our stakeholders and honoring those who work and live in the communities surrounding our venues.

We pay attention to details.
We know the smallest touches—the memorabilia walls, the kids’ play structures—can have the greatest impact on spaces. We dig in to discover what makes a venue and its community unique and we are intentional about bringing these elements to life.

We dive deep.
We don’t just work for organizations—we work with them, and their spaces grow close to our hearts. With a combined 50+ years in the planning and development world, many of which were spent serving in executive roles for professional teams and leagues, Canopy leadership understands the operational realities and ownership dynamics that traditional consultants do not.
