About Texas Economic Development Corporation
Consistently ranked as one of the best states for business, Texas tops the charts as a global economic powerhouse. We work hard to ensure that Texas maintains its No. 1 ranking.
The Texas Economic Development Corporation (TxEDC) is an independently funded and operated 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization responsible for marketing and promoting Texas as a premier business location. Along with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and Tourism (EDT), these two highly focused organizations make up the cornerstone of Governor Greg Abbott’s economic development agenda to build a stronger Texas.
Through a robust program of national and international investment attraction missions, industry events, media relations, advertising and other signature initiatives, TxEDC spreads the word of Texas’ business advantages among a target audience of corporate decision makers and site selection consultants. The organization is made possible through the support of a broad range of organizations, Fortune 500 companies and privately held enterprises throughout the state. Read more about how we market Texas.
