This is the slide deck for the "Why Austin?" presentation by Joshua Baer of Capital Factory for his Eisenhower Fellowship to Ireland in September 2015. Austin is on fire – and it’s not just the summer heat. Austin is the fastest growing metro in the country and the Kauffman Foundation just rated it the #1 startup metro in the U.S. Successful entrepreneurs are moving here from Silicon Valley and around the world to start new companies. Apple, Amazon, Athena Healthcare, Atlassian, BigCommerce, Box, Dropbox, Facebook and Google are all expanding here – bringing talent with them and bringing critical experience to the talent that we already have here. Find out how Austin became a Tech Hub and what is unique about it's success.
