Market Smart
for the Region

Texans realistically
understand addressing
the challenges of
correcting our vital
information access
deficits cannot be solely
a public sector
responsibility. 


Not only would it be
cost prohibitive,
we have learned
that some of the
best ideas may
actually come from
the region's market
place of ideas.
