Snack startups share their recipes for success at SA Startup Week

It was a lesson in entrepreneurship from an often overlooked niche. Three San Antonio-based packaged food startup owners shared insights from their journey Tuesday at Geekdom’s Event Center to an audience made up mostly of high school students.

The talk was part of San Antonio Startup Week (SASW), a week-long series of panels and workshops featuring entrepreneurs and technology professionals who discussed the future of San Antonio’s startup economy. Think of the event as a scaled down South by Southwest for the technology sector and beyond.

San Antonio has a sizeable food manufacturing sector, but the number of its low-volume packaged consumer goods is small compared to nearby cities like Houston. Panel moderator Ryan Salts, director of Launch SA, which helps city entrepreneurs, said the insights from these panelists could help local entrepreneurs who might want to join the fight on grocery store shelves.
