The MITRE Air Force Cyber Operations Portfolio, in collaboration with Bridging Innovation, is working with MassChallenge Texas to help shape and scope their next accelerator program in San Antonio. In late January, MassChallenge Texas, which manages established accelerator programs in Austin and Houston, hosted local community leaders from San Antonio including MITRE, and Air Force, Port San Antonio, San Antonio Spurs, and SwRI, at the AT&T Center in San Antonio. MassChallenge shared their plans to expand into the San Antonio market in 2021, focusing the new program on sports technologies (Spurs) and cyber security (AF, MITRE, SwRI).
