The Geekdom Workshops program is an extension of the original 1:1 mentorship program. It serves as a foundational education resource for community members just launching their business as well as established business owners looking to grow. Workshops are curated by the Programs team and are based on feedback and requests we receive from the Geekdom community. They take place the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Tuesday of every month in the Tron conference room from 3:30PM - 5:00PM.
Geekdom Mentor Week takes place the first full business week of every month and is an opportunity for members to meet with vetted local industry experts and experienced professionals 1:1 for guidance and/or feedback on their business. An email with the mentor lineup for the month is sent out a week prior allowing members to schedule time with the mentor of their choice.
Does your startup need some summer talent? The Students + Startups program aims to connect high-caliber college students with San Antonio-based startups looking to hire an intern. Both interns and startups are carefully vetted to ensure a good fit and a productive summer. Students + Startups is a summer internship program that was founded in 2016 in partnership with Trinity University and the 80/20 Foundation.

Startup Weekend is a 54 hour event done in partnership with Techstars, which brings together San Antonio designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains, to do amazing things together. Participants have an opportunity to pitch an idea, or join the team they think they can contribute the most to. Throughout the weekend, participants have access to mentors that will help them validate their idea, develop a MVP, and prepare for the final pitches on Sunday. At the end of the weekend, participants have the opportunity to compete for prizes that will help them continue to build the top ideas. For more information, please visit here.
