- Columbus ranks 26th in the nation among large metropolitan areas for its number of “high-impact” companies, those that produce both significant revenue growth and expanding employment.
- Yet only 3% (2.2 percent) or 2,048 of Austin's 90,720 businesses are considered to be high-impact.
- On average, it takes a company almost 20 years to enter this high-impact stage.
- Yet, three out of four companies cease to be high-impact after just four years.
On January 27, Gary will be sharing this new vision and a specific plan for accelerating the economic development equation with business and community leaders in Austin.
In attendance at the Austin Economic Acceleration event will be CEOs of small and midsized businesses, chamber of commerce executives, economic development executives, civic leaders, business incubator professionals, college and university business program chairs and faculty, quality program professionals, venture capitalists, private equity and angel investors, business coaches, management consultants, and professional service firm partners.
