Last April, Industry Week featured an article proclaiming “Greater San Marcos Region Transforms into the Texas Innovation Corridor.” It is safe to say that the entire 2018 fiscal year was filled with changes and work that can be appropriately called TRANSFORMATIONAL.
At the beginning of FY18, GSMP offices relocated from Wonder World Drive to the historic downtown square. We believe that this new location will allow GSMP to better show prospects the vibrancy of our downtown area and proximity to Texas State University. Over the course of the fiscal year, staff changes have allowed us to add new skill-sets and experience, and strengthen the GSMP team.
This year, your support has allowed GSMP to assist six companies to announce nearly 200 jobs and more than $100M in capital investment across our region. We also laid significant groundwork for a busy 2019 by responding to 78 RFIs with projects averaging nearly 800 jobs and $170M in capital investment. This work promises to deliver numerous location announcements in early FY2019.
