There’s a little secret about the tech scene here: It’s actually really tiny. In our best years, we’ll get about 10% of the total investment an Austin or Houston gets put into tech annually.
So, why does it feel so real? Other industries like medical startups are much bigger. But, there’s no concentration of them. No branding of the area where they’re located.
We have a great opportunity to repeat what’s happened in San Antonio’s tech district. It’s on Broadway from the McNay museum at the north end to the San Antonio Museum of Art on the south end. A bona fide museum district:
There’s 4 high-quality museums and a great zoo.
We also have the emergence of a performing arts district on the north side of downtown with the Aztec, Majestic and Tobin theatres all within walking distance of each other.
