Located in Southeastern San Diego, where 77% of the largely minority population are at or below the poverty level, CONNECT ALL @ the Jacobs Center is San Diego’s only business accelerator exclusively for low-to-moderate income founders.

So far, over 50 local businesses have been jumpstarted through the program since its launch in May 2019. Currently, CONNECT ALL @ the Jacobs Center is accepting applications for the next cohort in March 2022.

Alex Waters, Director of Economic Development & Innovation for the Jacobs Center, explains how this business accelerator is helping entrepreneurs struggling through the pandemic.
