Gateway to the Texas Hill Country, capital of the state, and nicknamed Silicon Hills for all the tech companies that are located here, Austin Texas – ATX to locals – is an entrepreneurial juggernaut when it comes to start-up incubation centers. Austin is known globally as the “Live Music Capital of the World” mainly for its long-running show on PBS “Austin City Limits” which premiered in October of 1974 with a 30-minute live performance by Austin resident, Willie Nelson. The unofficial city motto is “Keep Austin Weird.”
58% of Austin residents are single and of the 324,892 households, 48.1% are occupied by unrelated persons. The largest age demographic group in Austin is from 25 to 44 at 35% with an average age of new Austinites at 32.7. Some of this high percentage of residents can be explained by the fact that the University of Texas-Austin is located in the downtown corridor along with the state capital and all the legislative office buildings. 14% of the 50,000 students live on campus in rooms that are about 120 square feet. Many parents opt to use an Austin storage unit to expand that space. Austin also has one of the best public transportation services in the country utilizing bus, train and a series of bike paths to smooth out the morning commute.
Since the dot-com crash in early 2000, Austin city government launched a metro-wide incubator called "Opportunity Austin" in September 2003. The purpose was to not just to attract new industries to the area but to support and grow those already located there. The existing industries like computer software, digital media, wireless technology, semiconductors, and tourism were part of a multi-million dollar ad campaign that served to attract new companies. It was so successful that after five years, 72,000 jobs and 2.9 billion in payroll were added. Diverse new industries like automotive, warehousing and logistics, medical devices and green energy companies moved to Austin.
