Industries included at The Port are cybersecurity, aerospace, global logistics, defense, education, robotics, and manufacturing. The new innovation center will be a 130,000 square foot technology campus.

For example, Blue Duck Scooters has created an electrical scooter transportation program that allows for reservations, tracking, and more through a mobile app. Silotech Group is providing IT solutions for companies that range from small to large including cloud and cyber services. Wellaware is another business that is geared towards industries such as healthcare and oil that need to monitor safety equipment They also help control chemical allocations and air purifications for companies like BP and Citgo. These innovative companies are only a few of the tech businesses that need tech workers from back-end development of websites and apps to front-end development.

San Antonio’s Chamber of Commerce reports that its city is the second largest cyber hub in the country. It is also the home of the largest Department of Defense joint base in the country. The chamber works to continue its strong cybersecurity presence through the CyberSecurity San Antonio Program by creating partnerships between military and government agencies, community programs, startups, and tech companies.

Companies include Def-Logix, Denim Group, Secure Apps, Northrop Grumman, Oracle, Cisco, Verizon, and Lockheed Martin.

This varied tech landscape is exciting and encouraging for bootcamp graduates and the opportunities that await.
