Geekdom, San Antonio’s collaborative startup community, has selected 15 startup companies to participate in its initial 2023 Geekdom Incubator, an eight-week program designed to help first-time founders and early-stage entrepreneurs refine their startup ideas, learn business basics, build their network, and take the first steps towards traction.

“Geekdom supports entrepreneurs and their visions at every stage of their journeys. The Geekdom Incubator helps founders focus as they cultivate their ideas, conduct market
research, refine their product or service and seek their first customers, ” said Geekdom program manager Jon Ryan Garcia. “Our end goal is to help these companies succeed and
retain them in the growing San Antonio startup ecosystem.”
