What is Velocity TX
For over 35 years, the Texas Research Technology Foundation (TRTF) has been successfully promoting and developing emerging technologies and the life science industry in the San Antonio area. In that time, it has established strong relationships within and become an integral part of the innovation ecosystem. In 2017, TRTF purchased the five-acre Merchant Ice complex which is located near Ft. Sam Houston. The Merchant Ice complex is being developed as an innovation center and includes its VelocityTX incubator and accelerator with a focus on the life sciences, biotech, military medicine and disruptive technologies.
