"To obtain the connected certification, Bastrop had to meet certain benchmark scores based on the National Broadband Plan that demonstrate it is a technologically advanced community," said David Quinn, Bastrop Economic Development Corporation Executive Director. "And the extensive assessment of our overall broadband and technology resources helped us determined and prioritized projects to stay ahead of the curve and accelerate broadband access, adoption, and use for the future."

According to Quinn, Internet access is important in attracting the kind of business and industry the community is ideally suited for – IT/Technology, Manufacturing, BioTech/Life Sciences and Hospitality/Retail.

Connectivity isn't the only asset Bastrop has to offer, however. Located within a university triangle whose points include the University of Texas, Texas State University, and Texas A&M University, Bastrop has the educational resources companies need for innovation and employee satisfaction.

Quality of life assets include the City of Bastrop's historic and picturesque downtown, the unique scenic "Lost Pines" and Colorado River natural environment with numerous outdoor recreational opportunities. The community also boasts a large arts community and an engaged, multi-cultural  population. With Austin only 30 minutes away and San Antonio about an hour's drive, the community also offers access to the resources of larger metropolitan areas without sacrificing its small town charm.

Bastrop County also benefits from being part of Austin's MSA, a globally recognized region with a high performing economy. The proximity to Austin Bergstrom International Airport (20 mins) offers air transport and connection to I-35 and I-10 provides access  north and south, east and west.

The Bastrop Economic Development Corporation offers relocation assistance that can include reduced purchase price on property or even opportunities for "free land" in the Bastrop Business & Industrial Park. Some tax abatements are available from The City of Bastrop.

Relocation projects could also qualify for a Texas Department of Agriculture Capital Fund grants, and the State of Texas also offers incentives and financing, including the Texas Enterprise Fund, the Texas Emerging Technology Fund, and various tax incentives for businesses expanding or relocating to Texas.
