Silicon Hills News




SiliconHillsNews is a start-up technology news site covering the Austin and San Antonio region, known as Silicon Hills.
We write stories about entrepreneurs, companies, technology events and issues and creative people.
My name is Laura Lorek and I started Silicon Hills News after winning one of four $12,000 awards in the J-Lab and McCormick Foundation’s New Media Women Entrepreneur 2011 program. That grant provided the seed funding to launch.
Covering technology in Central Texas is our focus. And we’ve been doing it for long time.
Before launching Silicon Hills News, I worked as a senior writer at the San Antonio Express News covering high tech and business news stories.
But now my full focus is on making Silicon Hills News the best tech news site in Central Texas. We recently celebrated our fifth anniversary. We’ve accomplished so much in such a short time including growing our readership and publishing a print magazine funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign. And creating two 2015 Geek calendars for Austin and San Antonio funded by another successful Kickstarter campaign and a 2016 Austin Tech Calendar.
