(L-R) Build Sec Foundry management team members Bob Gleichauf, Will Garrett, and ATI Director Bart Bohn launch new cybersecurity incubator at geekdom in San Antonio.

CyberSecurity San Antonio, an industry-driven program sponsored by the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, has announced the new Build Sec Foundry, a cybersecurity incubator located at the Geekdom co-working space.

ATI Director Bart Bohn serves on the group’s management team, along with Bob Gleichauf, chief scientist at VC firm In-Q-Tel; Will Garret of CyberSecurity San Antonio; and John Dickson, principal at the Denim Group.

Build Sec Foundry will accelerate startups to build innovative solutions for a secure future. The San Antonio location was chosen because of the city’s rich cybersecurity ecosystem and numerous city sponsored initiatives. San Antonio is the nexus of the top U.S. university program, industry experts, and military and private interests for cybersecurity.

The San Antonio area is the largest hub for federal cybersecurity work outside of the nation’s capital, local tech executives say. Bexar County is home to two major Air Force cybersecurity units — the 24th Air Force and 25th Air Force at the Lackland AFB — as well as an outpost of the National Security Agency.

Build Sec Foundry received a $600,000 donation from the 8020 Foundation, founded by Rackspace founder and chairman Graham Weston.

Sevi Bohn holds the $600,000 check from the 8020 Foundation with her dad Bart at the Build Sec Foundry launch.
