The Round Rock Chamber has developed the “Entrepreneur Stories (E-Stories) Project” to share the success stories of entrepreneurs. The E-Stories Project is designed to be a library of entrepreneurs’ success stories that showcase local entrepreneurship in action.
The goal of this project is to promote the entrepreneurial spirit in Round Rock and inspire community members to move their ideas from mind to market. Ready to start your journey? Check out the chamber’s REV UP Round Rock strategy and Small Business Guide for helpful resources.
