About San antonio Overview

San Antonio is building the economy of the future.  The area is already home to a thriving business community, including the headquarters for 2 Fortune Global 500 firms and 7 Fortune 1000 companies.  Through the City’s SA2020 initiative, it is focused on aggressively growing its unique business assets that attract talent, and foster innovation in key industries. These industries include:

  • Aerospace
  • Biosciences/Healthcare
  • Defense
  • Energy
  • Information Technology & Cybersecurity
  • Manufacturing

These industries compliment the region’s strengths, one of which is a labor force that's experienced, professional, diverse and growing.  San Antonio’s long history of military service and geographic location have produced a workforce that is adept at problem solving and naturally inclined to working across cultures.  The city is also home to more 130,000 students studying at colleges and universities rapidly growing in both size and stature. 

Our excellent workforce pipeline is complemented by the region’s cost of living, which is among the lowest among America’s large cities.  This allows companies to save costs doing business and allow its employees to enjoy an incredible quality of life.

Add a central geographic location, a versatile transportation infrastructure that connects you to the entire continent, and the Alamo City is one of the best places to live, work, and enjoy the good life in the Americas.
