“I’m relatively new to the Austin area, but it’s been my goal to be involved in this market for some time,” said Joe Harper, Texas State SBDC Center Director. “The vibrancy of the entrepreneurial community and the innovations that happen in this market around technology far surpass many other places in the U.S. Key to our participation in this market is providing leadership along with other stakeholders in the Austin technology ecosystem, bringing together the best possible environment for technology companies to lay a successful foundation and grow to greatness.”
