  9. 9. Feedback from locals immersed in the ecosystem: » There is a live, active entrepreneurial environment focused on impact in Austin, largely driven by the city’s culture and The University of Texas. » Events such as SXSW really push and emphasize Austin’s outlook on entrepreneurship as well as highlighting how connected and supportive the city is. This take adds to the well-known culture of Austin. » Many groups of investors and founders are fragmented into smaller communities and there is an opportunity for them to work more closely together to elevate the entire Austin ecosystem. Analysis Subject Matter Expert: Brian Williams RBL1.COM Insight from Local Subject Matter Experts Austin, TX
  10. 10. The venture capital ecosystem in Austin is growing rapidly and increasing in presence on the global stage, catalyzed by the annual conference SXSW. With many historic success stories and with new companies like ICON Build making a remarkable name for itself, the city of Austin creates change and makes impact (cleantech) by heavily focusing on cybersecurity, firetech, enterprise SaaS, and consumer products. The city has more recently caught the eyes of venture capital investors leading to a higher investment per capita ratio when compared to other cities: this is likely driven by the creative economy of Austin. One worry many investors have is that due to the young market that Austin is, there is a limited history of startups becoming public companies like Dell, and as a result, there is a greater emphasis on being loosely acquired. Another issue the city faces is that with no other major startup region in close proximity, it can be challenging to bring large corporate executives down to the South; however, in a more positive light, there has been an influx of investors and talent from California (in the last year or two) coming due to the lower cost of living, weather, objectiveness in valuation, and creative community that Austin supports i.e. “Keep Austin Weird.” As Austin moves forward, it is important for the city to maintain these advantages and stick to its culture as the ecosystem matures.
