Women make up only 25 percent of the technology workforce and only 5 percent of its industry leaders. As San Antonio's first Center for Applied Science and Technology -- or CAST Tech High School -- closes its application period on Friday, they are looking to raise the number of female applicants.  CAST Tech Principal Kelly Flieger says she wants to beat the national average.

One in four San Antonio households lack internet. A digital summit Wednesday held by city and community leaders aimed to bridge that gap.

The Digital Inclusion Summit brought in national experts to walk people through the issue and why it was important, but for people living in these communities like Rosa Wilson the reason was obvious, jobs. Wilson, a pastor at the Greater Faith Institutional Church on San Antonio's East side, says it makes it harder for her neighbors and congregates to find work.

San Antonio has a growing number of startup technology companies. Many cities rely on accelerator programs that provide numerous services to help a startup develop successfully. A new San Antonio accelerator will be launching Wednesday night and it could have quite an impact.
