The Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce is once again shining a light on some of the city’s most promising startups, adding a dozen names this week to its growing Austin A-List


Since its 2011 debut, companies on the A-List have received nearly $350 million in investments as a result of the increased exposure, according to chamber executives


This time around, more than 250 local firms were nominated, the chamber said. The 12 new additions were revealed at an event held Wednesday, which was dubbed Austin Innovation Day by Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell


“Today we recognize a community that has contributed so strongly to the overall growth of Austin,” Leffingwell said in a written statement. “Innovators are a key part of Central Texas’ strong economic ecosystem and will continue to drive the future of Austin, not only as one of the most desirable cities, but as a leading city of innovation.”


“Austin is a city with deep roots in innovation, thereby serving as home to some of the world’s top entrepreneurs, founders and 21st century trend-setters,” said Michele Skelding, the chamber’s senior vice president for global technology and innovation


“Our region has a proven track record of producing tomorrow’s cutting-edge new ideas. The Austin chamber is delighted to honor our most innovative, scaleable startup companies who are not only blazing a trail, but elevating Austin to the next level as an innovation cluster, further strengthening our reputation as a top city to start and grow a business.”
