Why Invest in Austin, TX

As “The Heart of Texas” – Austin is the 4th largest city in Texas, and the 11th largest city in the U.S. In addition to being the political seat of the state, it is a major cultural and music hub – it’s also knows as “The Live Music Capital of the World” and hosts the annual SXSW (South by Southwest music festival) – one of the largest music festivals in the U.S. – which brought over $220 M into the city in 2013,[1] and has an economic impact that far exceeds the festival’s 14 day length. It’s a young, vibrant city, where the unofficial motto is “keep Austin weird” and where the average age is 31 years old – a full 9 years younger than the state average. [2] Austin is home to headquarters for Facebook, Google, Dell, IBM, and other high-tech employers, which have given new life to the downtown, and have created an influx of Millennials and their families – all looking for a place to live.[3] With a strong university culture, no state of personal income tax, and world-class cultural institutions such as the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum, Austin is a great place for people to visit and to live.
