San Antonio Economic Development Foundation

The Intersection of Business and Culture

Advantageously located in South Central Texas, San Antonio is one of the fastest-growing U.S. economies. Our deep-rooted military presence gives us an edge in cybersecurity, bioscience, and innovative manufacturing, while our competitive cost of living and inclusive culture attracts young professionals looking to build wealth.

With a workforce of over 1.2M and more than 160K students in our higher-ed pipeline we’ve got the workforce to fuel our diverse industries. Known as “Military City USA”, San Antonio also provides a unique opportunity for companies to find skilled individuals separating or retiring from military duty. These people are ready with both the hard skills and soft skills employers need. In addition, Joint Base San Antonio awards $135 million in contracts to small businesses annually. Our collaborative R&D community also gains an edge from access to military medicine, technology, and innovations, giving us a unique ecosystem where companies can thrive.
