San Antonio’s tech labor pool has grown to more than 31,000, an increase of nearly 5,000 or 17.8% in the last five years (2012 to 2017). The cost of business is significantly lower, with the total cost of business ranking at just 88% of the US average. Comparing the annual average apartment rent with the annual average tech salary, San Antonio’s rent-to-tech wage ratio is 12.5%, creating a very affordable cost of living for tech employees in San Antonio, according to a recent CBRE report.—Lisa Brown
