​​​ROUND ROCK – Leaders in Round Rock point to a successful partnership that feeds the city’s economic growth, bringing regular announcements of new businesses and industries coming to town.

What works for economic development is the current pact between the City of Round Rock and the Round Rock Chamber—called the Round Rock Economic Development Partnership. 

The group also includes private businesses that support the chamber’s Momentum campaign, a five-year development strategy.

Officials said although Dell Technologies changed the landscape of companies investing in Round Rock, other businesses have followed because of strong school districts, major highways with access to other major Texas cities, the proximity to Austin, an educated workforce and an international airport 30 minutes away.

Round Rock has six target sectors for growth, including:
  • advanced manufacturing;
  • clean energy;
  • computer systems development;
  • corporate offices, operations and support services;
  • destination retail; and
  • health care and biotechnology.
The plan has brought more than 6,100 jobs from 50 projects with an investment total of more than $864 million since 2011, according to figures from the Chamber.
