Geekdom Incubator

Geekdom has always been more than a coworking space. Our mission is to build San Antonio one startup at a time. We encourage startups, technology and entrepreneurship. Located in downtown San Antonio, Geekdom has been an incubator for amazing new companies since our start in October 2011.

Almost 10 years later, we launched our official Incubator program. This is a part-time, 12-month program designed around busy schedules. Participants include full-time students and hopeful entrepreneurs. Together, with experienced business mentors, they transform their ideas into companies that solve real problems. The Geekdom Incubator Program enhances local talent, encourages innovation and entrepreneurship, and drives economic growth.
