(April 20th 2017) – San Marcos, Texas – MicroPower believes strongly in helping to promote the local economic initiatives in Central Texas. Over the years, a strong working relationship has been developed with Greater San Marcos Partnership (GSMP), a public-private partnership founded in 2010 that serves as the regional economic development organization for the City of San Marcos, Hays and Caldwell Counties, located at the heart of the Innovation Corridor between Austin and San Antonio.
GSMP has been instrumental in promoting MicroPower as an innovative company with leading-edge technology and great prospects for growth and job creation opportunities locally. GSMP has hosted several major international delegations, including the 7th ACE (Americas Competitiveness Exchange), an exciting global trade and investment initiative led by the U.S. Economic Development Administration and the Organization of American States (OAS) with over 50 international leaders from 27 countries as part of a U.S. Department of Commerce and State Department initiative.
GSMP, the City of San Marcos and Texas State University hosted this unique international delegation on April 5, 2017 and provided a day-long tour showcasing a selected few companies who represent the area’s innovation, entrepreneurship, industry and culture. The purpose of this unique tour was to develop potential international partnerships and opportunities to increase investment and job creation. MicroPower was one of the companies selected to participate in this effort. The ACE delegation visited MicroPower’s facilities in San Marcos and received an overview of MicroPower’s technology and target applications.
“Strong partnerships, locally, regionally and internationally, between businesses, entrepreneurs, workforce developers and government leaders are key to a strong economy in any community,” said Adriana Cruz, President of GSMP. “MicroPower is one of our shining stars of an innovative business pushing the boundaries in their industry here in the Innovation Corridor. They are a great example of the success that can come from these strong relationships and a welcoming startup environment – we were delighted to have the MicroPower team participate in the 7th Americas Competitiveness Exchange.”
“We are proud to be members of the San Marcos business community so it is pleasing to receive this recognition from the Department of Commerce and the other parties involved in the Americas Competitiveness Exchange,” added MicroPower’s Chairman, Max Lewinsohn. “We believe our technology has the capacity to make a global impact – with our technical base in San Marcos playing a pivotal role in the company’s growth.”
