Competing For The Future: It's about people, not just technology.

Irys, Co-founder & CEO

The future won't be determined by technology alone. It ultimately comes down to the choices businesses, governments, academia, labor unions, and societies as a whole make. At the center of these choices, you have visionary entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who have the agency to shape the world. But what drives them? What is their purpose? 

Beto reflects on his motivations, choices, and purpose in this talk. Where he highlights his journey as a San Antonio tech entrepreneur navigating the social impact space. From launching the 311SA App that has impacted thousands of residents in San Antonio to work with the U.S. Air Force or climate resilience efforts on the east coast, Beto makes the case on why we should foster innovation that addresses social challenges.

The Sundown EXP @ Hopscotch: "Cyberpunk Edition" 
Creative Tech Workshop and Photo Meetup 

Grab your cameras to kickstart a creative future!  

A creative experience like no other,  picture this: 80s meets cyberpunk meets the innovators of the future.  This will be an evening of magic curated by the creative innovators of our city.  An experience for all, participants from SASW will team up with the SA Creatives to hang at Hopscotch and grab a custom drink made just for SASW (eg. "The Innovator") while they witness a live workshop with a professional photographer and model in the lobby. 

Soon after they will follow a selected few models and photographers that will be decked out in 80s cyberpunk outfits created by some of San Antonio's most talented designers, stylists, and MUA. They will be following a narrative throughout Hopscotch.  Other photographers and models are welcomed to explore and create art together throughout the space. 

Our hopes and goals are that the participants from the day's events that are made up of the city's innovators, founders, and dreamers will join in and mix with the SA Creatives to create a beautiful mix of our city's innovators.  We want everyone to leave inspired and filled with a stomach full of creative butterflies ready to disrupt this city with new and fresh ideas!  So who's with me? Who is ready to see what happens when technology meets creativity after "Sundown".

Healthcare Data Interoperability: Integration Strategy Workshop
Pryce Ancona
Pryce Ancona
Redox, Solutions Engineer

In our modern, application-driven world, many of the largest industries have adopted seamless methods of integration. New technologies or software innovations are usually just an API away from unlocking valuable data for their users - whether it be about your bank account or your to-go dinner order. However, the healthcare industry lags far behind. Strict regulations, anti-competitive incentives, and antiquated healthcare-niche communication standards create friction in the adoption of healthcare technology.

Whether you're a small startup founder, a major insurance company, a healthcare provider, or an electronic health record employee, it's likely that you would benefit from integration. After all - we're all patients! Join us for this informal presentation and integration workshop to discuss what healthcare interoperability looks like today and how you can stand on the shoulders of giants to make patients healthier.
