Building a robust San Antonio economy in the coming decades requires that we compete for the talent that will drive it. Increasingly this means technical, engineering and entrepreneurial talent. Not only are these people building the companies of tomorrow, they are the most in demand inside existing companies. Yes, Google and Techstars startups need programmers and engineers, but so do USAA, Frost Bank and NuStar. Today’s industries and companies need technical workers and they will go wherever they need to get the talent to compete.
