Austin is a city where sharp minds come together to craft greatness and unleash potential over chips and queso. Established in 2016, North Highland Austin is made of artists and roughnecks. We are musicians and we are engineers. We thrive in Austin’s potent brew of art, culture and innovation, where our expertise in the public sector, high tech and retail and consumer packaged goods directly contributes to our community’s shared prosperity. Keeping with the Texas can-do spirit, we apply our compassion and global capabilities to the next generation of Austinites through partnerships with Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas and Street Youth Ministry of Austin.

our culture

In the Community

We want to create sustainable, long-term economic empowerment in the communities in which we work and live. To do that, we support projects and organizations that tackle financial stability, family sustaining employment and housing holistically, because our research shows these core areas can have a bigger and longer term impact. Our annual Day of Giving Back has been another way we have invested in local communities, doing everything from preparing meals, teaching professional workshops, painting playgrounds and more.
