  • Tech Bloc emerges from COVID era with new CEO, direction – Link
    – The San Antonio Report’s Tracy Idell Hamilton

“Longtime residents of San Antonio may remember the initial fervor over Tech Bloc eight years ago as a throng of people crowded inside what would later become Southerleigh Fine Food and Brewery, cheering on the prospect of invigorating San Antonio’s tech community.

Since the pandemic, Tech Bloc has taken on more of a background role in San Antonio’s rapidly unfolding tech narrative. But that could change under new leadership, as new CEO Ileana Gonzalez prepares to steer the nonprofit in the latter half of 2023 and beyond.

“People have been super positive about the announcement,” said the 29-year-old, who was named former CEO David Heard’s successor following his resignation announcement Sept. 12. “I think everybody’s excited for what they’re now calling Tech Bloc 2.0.” – San Antonio Business Journal’s Zoe Gottlieb
