San Antonio City Manager, Sheryl Sculley, introduced the CivTech Residency program winners and spoke of the City’s excitement for the necessary solutions the startups will be working on and the positive impact they will have on the San Antonio community.
Over the next 16 weeks, the startups will work closely with the DHS and Aviation department and the City of San Antonio to build custom solutions for residents and travelers. In August, the startups will then present their solutions to the City and the Community at a Demo Day presentation for the chance to get a contract with the City of San Antonio.
Kinetech Cloud is a cloud-native company combining full-service business consulting, agile software development and enterprise support, and will be responsible for solve the Department of Human Services’ Utility Assistance Challenge.
Michael Guido CEO of Kinetech Cloud said, “Of the seven opportunities for innovation the City outlined, we felt the DHS challenge aligned with our core competency around workflow improvement and digitizing paper-based processes. We are honored to be selected from such a competitive field of applicants and are excited to get started with the Residency.”
The Utility Assistance Challenge is centered around streamlining the current application system for residents that need utility assistance. Currently, the only way to apply is to mail-in or drop off paper applications with required documentation at a central location. This means that the City has to manually sort through each application to determine eligibility and establish assistance.
