Austin continues to be a magnet for tech companies, attracting businesses from across the globe that want to tap into the city’s storied pool of local talent.

Last year, at least eight tech companies opened new offices in Austin, and another 13 companies moved their headquarters here. This year is beating last year’s count, with at least 11 new offices announced as of December 16.

The list, which includes homegrown startups as well as newcomers, will be updated throughout the year as more companies open up shop in Silicon Hills.
