2018 Greater San Marcos Innovation Summit

The Greater San Marcos region's economy is growing, thanks in large part to the strong presence of an Emerging Research University - Texas State University. The University's research and commercialization efforts, including the development of their research park called STAR Park, is already having an impact in transfoming our region into a center of innovation, connecting Austin and San Antonio into an "Innovation Corridor". 

This event is an in-depth look at the impact that higher education research, commercialization, and innovation have on the future of our regional economy. Speakers include Texas State University President Denise Trauth, along with a panel of leaders from the higher education istitutions (UT Austin, Texas State University, UT San Antonio) to discuss how these three instituions working collectively will drive the future of our regional economy. 

Also featured at this event, is the presentation of the 2018 Dick Burdick Award for Innovation. The Burdick Award, named after the late Dick Burdick, was created to help recognize area companies that are thinking outside the box and finding creative solutions to complete problems through innovative methods, ideas, products, and practices. Past winners include Paratus Diagnostics, MicroPower Global, Quantum Materials, and Thermon.

To nominate a business located in Hays or Caldwell Counties (including your own), please sumbit a brief statement describing the company's innovative method, idea, product, or practice to Cara Ryan at carar@greatersanmarcostx.com. The deadline for submissions is August 31st, 2018.
