About Walmart ATX
Austin was picked as the location of Walmart's first technology incubator because it’s one of the top cities in the world for tech. Walmart ATX will develop emerging technology such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, blockchain and Internet of Things for use across the company’s global operations.
Located at the former home of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema at Fourth and Colorado streets, the space features a startup-like working environment to encourage collaboration and innovative thinking.
