Why Round Rock is a Great Place to Launch a Business


We all know what a wonderful gift it is to live and work in a vibrant, vital city such as Round Rock, but it’s always nice to see that these sentiments are supported by statistics – quantifiable numbers that prove what we’ve known all along: Round Rock is an amazing place to launch a business.


Don’t just take our word for it

According to WalletHub’s 2018 report on the fastest-growing economies in America, Round Rock is on the shortlist of cities to watch, easily surpassing Austin and coming in sixth in all of Texas.

In the report, WalletHub researchers looked at 15 distinct metrics, including population growth, unemployment rate decrease and income growth. Round Rock ranked high on college-educated population growth, new job growth, number of new businesses, investment in the area, and the number of building permits issued.

In addition, Niche, an organization that publishes rankings for neighborhoods, schools, and colleges across America, named Round Rock the safest city in Texas and the fifth-safest in the entire country. They also list us as one of the top-20 best places to live in the United States, based on the high quality of our school districts, our low crime rate, and superb access to amenities.

As if that wasn’t enough, Williamson County was recognized as the fourth-healthiest county in Texas and the most affordable, along with being one of the top three best places in America to start a family.

Other recent accolades include:

  • World’s Top Tech City 2018 (Savilles)
  • #1 Best Place to Live 2017 (US News and World Report)
  • #4 Best City for Small Businesses 2017 (Value Penguin)
  • Best City to Launch a Business 2018 (Reward Network)
  • #1 Best City in America for Jobs 2018 (Forbes)
  • Best City for Young Entrepreneurs 2018 (Boss Magazine)

And the list goes on.
