Could Austin businesses look to Ireland for expansion opportunities?

Global expansion is a lofty goal for many business owners, but Austin employers can learn what it takes to conduct international operations at an upcoming seminar. The event represents one of many opportunities that are regularly available to those who pursue the homes for sale in Austin.

On October 24, 2012, a complimentary seminar titled "Grow Your Business Through Ireland" will be offered to Austin business executives. Attendees will have the chance to learn from experts associated with a wide range of companies, including, IDA Ireland and PwC.

"Emerging businesses thrive in collaborative, entrepreneurial environments," said Barry O' Dowd, Head of IDA Ireland's Emerging Business Division. "Just as the Capital Factory nurtures innovation among tech startups in Austin, Ireland offers a supportive ecosystem that fosters international growth through a highly trained, technically savvy workforce and pro-business infrastructure."

The benefits of global expansion
Companies that consider international growth can enjoy several benefits. Many businesses are able to increase their outreach and profits by attracting new clients to their products and services.

High-revenue companies could help bring new residents to the area, and these people could further enhance the quality of life in the region.

For example, recent data shows that Austin's economy is affected by film, music and interactive festivals. The Austin American-Statesman reports that the annual South by Southwest (SXSW) Conferences & Festivals brought $167 million to the economy in 2011, which is 12 percent higher than the total earned from the event in 2010.

Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell notes that SXSW has been an important part of the city for more than 25 years. The conferences and festivals have a significant impact on the economy, and local companies that deliver outstanding support worldwide could draw more interest to the event and other aspects of Austin.

Business owners and residents could reap the rewards when local companies expand their outreach. Property buyers who act soon may be able to get in on the ground floor of the growing Austin economy.

Lower-than-average interest rates are available on many fixed-rate mortgages. The interest rate on these mortgages was under 3.56 percent on 15- and 30-year allowances throughout September 2012. Homebuyers can take advantage of these interest rates to purchase quality properties located throughout Austin.
