The folks who brought you PR Over Coffee have released a new startup resource, Startup over Coffee, a map of many entrepreneurial resources available for startups in the Austin, Texas market.
Why Austin? Well, for one thing, we got our start in Austin!
More importantly is Austin’s rapid rise among the nation’s top metro markets to become a dominant player in the world of startup ecosystems. Austin came in at #1 in the CNBC Metro 20: America’s Best Places to Start a Business in August. Austin cracked the top 10 on the 2016 Kauffman Index, which measures the entrepreneurial vitality of the 40 largest metro areas on the country. Austin also hit #1 on the Forbes list of The Cities Creating the Most Technology Jobs 2015.
One of the most important aspects of the success of Austin’s startup scene? An incredibly diverse, mature startup ecosystem made up of all kinds of businesses, organizations and media.

Our friend and local startup expert Paul O’Brien said this about the Austin startup scene:
Austin thrives because of its the convergence of technology with design, art, music, architecture, gaming, and the experiences that we love. Austin lives to work and our entrepreneurs are in coworking spaces, office parks, working from home, and in coffee shops throughout the city; connecting opportunities with talent, resources, and ideas.
