San Antonio has been selected to host a stop on the Small Business Administration’s tour of U.S. cities as part of National Small Business Week. SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet will lead a discussion on access to capital for small business development in the Central Texas Corridor.

Robert McKinley, who leads UTSA’s Institute for Economic Development, said that the San Antonio area was unique for a variety of reasons — and is a hot market both for businesses that want to locate here and for organic growth. “Demographically we are a young market. We have a high Latino population. It is said that San Antonio’s profile demographically looks like the United States in 2040.”

Contreras-Sweet, a member of President Obama’s cabinet, will be joined by former Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Henry Cisneros, also a former San Antonio mayor, and the Austin-based Congressman, Lloyd Doggett, for the panel discussion.
