About Us

Texans for Economic Progress (TEP) is a statewide non-profit advocacy group driven by a core belief that greater access to technology is critical to job creation, innovation and prosperity for the State of Texas. The global appetite for instant connectivity and access to information continues to explode, prompting the need for a new level of awareness of how public policy issues impact the success of our modern digital economy.

Our great state is consistently recognized as a top place to do business thanks to a robust economy and thriving technology sector. In efforts to keep Texas on top, TEP works closely with thought leaders in technology including entrepreneurs, corporations, education institutions, membership organizations, community partners, regulators and elected officials at the local, state and federal level.

Our mission is to inform, educate and connect the statewide technology community relative to three key issues: education, entrepreneurship and infrastructure.  These three topic areas intersect every aspect of technology and are critical to ensure the continued success of our state economy.
