How Tech Bloc has brought the SA Ecosystem Together

“TechBloc has been that one voice of the tech and startup community to rally the community in San Antonio around common cause. Now is the time to inspire and empower as we catch the rising tide of San Antonio and Texas’ growth in tech and startups to be a beacon of talent and opportunity”

Luis Martinez

Sr. Venture Associate, Capital Factory

“I remember the first time I went to a TechBloc event. I couldn’t even get in!  There was so much enthusiasm, at the time, from the disjointed San Antonio tech community to come together as part of a grassroots movement to push San Antonio to the next level. Since that first event in 2015, TechBloc has advocated for rideshare in San Antonio, has partnered with Bexar County through TechFuel offering SA’s largest cash prize pitch competition, helped raised $40,000 for SAISD families to gain free internet access needed for distance learning, and helped encourage the safe return of the SA tech community out of the pandemic, at the Tech District Reboot Rally.  I look forward to seeing what the next iteration of TechBloc is able to achieve.”

“From that faithful first event at Southerleigh at The Pearl in 2015, where we were spilling out into the courtyard, TechBloc has served as a voice for pushing boundaries and change in the tech and startup ecosystems here in San Antonio. What started with changing the narrative on ride share, has now become a ‘vehicle’ for access and growth. Growth such as funds for families to have access to internet for education. Additionaly, TechFuel… a pitch competition that serves to ‘fuel’ some of the next big startups to come out of San Antonio. Not only a member and serial co-founder, also the “Official, Unofficial DJ” for all the TechBloc events.. I have enjoyed the privilege of being here since day one and watched the change brought about. As a result of TechBloc making people more accessible to each other through a common goal… I have watched many, helped make, and made myself many connections and friendships. It has been a great journey. I am excited for what’s developing from TechBloc moving into 2024. Will you join us? Sign up today!”
