MOMENTUM
Building Partnerships. Creating Opportunities.
The Round Rock Economic Development
Partnership’s mission is to create a climate
of growth, opportunity and success in the
Round Rock community. The Partnership
implements this mission through projects
and programs that strategically leverage
community assets to nurture and grow
local enterprises, expand and diversify the
existing economic base, and attract new
business entities.
Message to
Investors
Round Rock has been blessed with significant population growth, diverse and strong employers, hard
working citizens, and an incredible quality of life.
Over the past decade, leaders of both the public and private sectors of Round Rock have recognized the
value and impact of combining and leveraging our financial, political, and marketing resources to attract
new investment and grow existing businesses in Round Rock. Since 2004, a group of private sector
investors, known as Momentum, has provided funding to support the economic development programs
administered by the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce & Economic Development Partnership.
More than 90 companies and organizations committed nearly $1 million for three years, funding FY 2009
to FY 2012. Today, Momentum is launching its third campaign, which will fund economic development
activities from October 1, 2012 through September 30, 2017. As we embark on this campaign, we look
forward to strengthening our partnerships with you and creating new ones.
We believe the best is yet to come, and with your ongoing support, we look forward to continued success
during the next five years.
Mayor Alan McGraw, Chair
Economic Development Advisory Committee
strategic
investments
Round Rock is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, and one of the best-managed cities in
Texas. Growing by more than 220% from 1990 to 2010, the city has maintained a high quality of life and
become a major center for economic growth in Central Texas.
In spite of the challenges of the “Great Recession,” our higher education and healthcare facilities have
expanded, existing businesses such as Dell, Toppan Photomask, IKEA, and others have grown, and
our downtown has become increasingly vibrant. We’ve most recently welcomed the headquarters of
Emerson Process Management to Round Rock as well as passed propositions to build an indoor sports
venue and increase investment in economic development.
Round Rock’s impressive growth reflects the vision and hard work of two generations of business,
civic, and government leaders, who leveraged Round Rock’s strategic location and seized growth
opportunities. A get-it-done, can-do attitude from all of our economic development partners has been
central to the city’s growth, progress, and prosperity.

As the city grows, the Partnership and its economic development partners must strive even harder to
advocate for the city, strategically leverage our resources, manage our land and infrastructure assets
wisely, and target growth towards industry sectors which offer the greatest opportunity for our citizens.

Strengthening
our foundation
One of the most important activities of the Partnership is to support the growth of existing businesses in
Round Rock. This could mean assisting a local business expand into a larger facility or applying for a
Texas Enterprise Zone designation on behalf of a company. The Partnership, for example, helped secure
an Enterprise Zone designation for Sears Teleserv and Wayne, A GE Company in 2010.
The Partnership serves local and small businesses through a variety of activities:
EXISTING LOCAL BUSINESSES
Permitting: Helps local companies to quickly navigate the permitting process as they grow and expand.
Site selection: Assists companies in finding new locations in Round Rock once they have outgrown their
existing space.
Workforce recruitment and training: Coordinates support by local workforce boards and educational
institutions for companies seeking to hire and train employees.
Financial assistance: Assists companies in finding financial resources including incentives, grants,
enterprise zone designation, foreign trade zone status, and other resources.
Statistical data: Provides access to data including local wage and benefit information, demographics,
workforce data, taxes, cost of living comparisons, and more.
SMALL BUSINESSES AND ENTREPRENEURS
Resource development: Brings together groups within Williamson County that assist entrepreneurs and
small businesses and encourage their collaboration, coordination and cross-publicity.
Downtown development: Facilitates communication of priorities between downtown merchants and the
City as well as supports downtown growth and development.

More than 50% of the Partnership’s retention visits are with small businesses of less than 50 employees.
In 2011, more than 50% of those surveyed through our Synchronist program anticipate increasing their
sales with 24% anticipating an increase in their market share. Since 2003, Round Rock businesses
have added the most new jobs in professional, scientific and technical services, health care and social
assistance, and retail trade.
We also know from our local businesses and from executives across the nation that workforce availability
and flexibility continue to be paramount to the location of new businesses and the success of existing
ones. Round Rock’s labor force continues to grow, adding more than 30% to the labor force from 2003
to 2010. Connecting our residents to educational resources is essential. As a result, our commitment
to and support from our educational partners is strong. These resources enhance Round Rock’s
competitiveness and are important tools for economic development.

In spite of the challenges of the “Great Recession,” Round Rock remains in growth mode. Since 2004,
taxable property values in the City have increased by 52%. The number of jobs in the City increased by
39% in that same time period.
This growth can attributed in part to the strength of our target industry sectors which include:
• Health Care and Biotechnology
• Supply Chain Development and Management
• Corporate Offices, Operations, and Support Services
• Computer Systems Development
• Clean Energy
• Retail
• Higher Education
These targets are the primary focus of the Partnership’s business attraction efforts.

The work of the Partnership is critical for the future of our city and for your business. We stimulate job
growth. We encourage business investment. We foster wealth creation. All of these create an economic
ripple effect that impacts Round Rock and region. Everyone benefits directly or indirectly. When a
company expands or locates in Round Rock, that means more jobs for the area. This leads to increases
in wages and salaries which leads to home purchases, retail spending, and so on.
Because of this multiplier effect, the success of the Partnership is directly linked to increased opportunity
for all local companies. Together, we develop a more competitive, diverse business climate and nurture
an environment where all of us can grow.
For almost a decade, the private sector has demonstrated its long-term commitment to building a
prosperous and diverse business environment for Round Rock. Because of this proven support, our
fundraising goal for Momentum 3 is $1.5 million in total commitments over the next five years. By raising
these private funds, we will be able to leverage $2.25 million in public sector funds.
We are counting on you to keep the momentum going.
