About The New Braunfels Economic Development Foundation

Commerce and trade are fundamental to community health and stability. A strong and growing economy is no longer taken for granted following the events of globalization, accounting scandals and recession. Locally, our community has experienced both growth and job loses losses due to such events. Competition is fiercer than ever. Fortunately, community leaders have created a blueprint for to create a stronger, more diverse and sustainable economy by placing top priority on growing the commercial tax base and the number of high-wage jobs in the trade area.

The Greater New Braunfels Economic Development Foundation (New Braunfels EDF or NBEDF) is a 501c3 non-profit created in 2005 to work collaboratively under the name of the New Braunfels Economic Development Corporation to help achieve our goals. The NBEDF was created in partnership with the City of New Braunfels (via the New Braunfels Economic Development Corporation [NBEDC]), Comal County, New Braunfels Utilities, and the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce.
