“It sits on the top floor of a glass-encased modern office building. With windows providing a 360-degree view of the city, everything that makes Austin one of the fastest growing cities in the country can be seen from its more than 200 desks.”

“Capital Factory is a collaboration between the Austin Chamber of Commerce and Josh Baer—a man who has become so integral to the city’s start-up scene that he’s known as the ‘Austinpreneur.’ Baer originally founded Capital Factory in 2009 as a start-up accelerator focused on helping young companies get started and attract investors. In May, the chamber selected it to run the 22,000-square-foot space that Baer hopes will make a city with an already thriving tech scene even better by creating a downtown hub.” —CNN
