Momentum is the economic development funding arm of the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce.
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.
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.
