Investor Spotlight – COSTEP

September 7, 2023

COSTEP, or the Council for South Texas Economic Progress, is one of TxEDC’s newest investors that  represents a seven-county region – Cameron, Hidalgo, Jim Hogg, Starr, Webb, Willacy and Zapata.

The economic development organization’s CEO Adam Gonzalez is on mission to put Rio South Texas on the international map. Gonzalez recently wrapped up a trip to Europe with TxEDC, the Office of Governor Greg Abbott, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and Tourism, Texas Secretary of State Jane Nelson and regional economic development partners. The mission to Europe included stops in Germany, United Kingdom and France.

“All three markets have great potential in Texas, and I would like to see Rio South Texas be a contender for businesses in these countries that are looking to move,” said Gonzalez. “Not only did I make great connections with key stakeholders of all three countries we visited, but also had great networking opportunities with staff from the Office of the Governor and TxEDC.”
