This San Diego Accelerator Is Looking For Diverse Founders

A new startup accelerator in San Diego is looking for ten diverse tech founders to join its new program.

The accelerator will house entrepreneurs in a modern coworking space called Connect All,  where participants will have access to six months of free office space, workshops, and fundraising help.

“We saw a need to equalize the economic opportunities across all of San Diego,” said Reginald Jones, the CEO, and president of the Jacobs Center in a statement.

Connect All will focus on tech and science-based companies with the potential to quickly scale. 

“We’re not necessarily looking for solo entrepreneurs or mom and pop small businesses,” said Connect All’s president and CEO Greg McKee in a press release.

For companies that aren’t accepted into the accelerator or don’t meet the qualifications, there is access to free or discounted business courses at the incubator.

The program is made possible by a $2.5 million grant secured by the city of San Diego.

Connect All is now accepting applications through January  16.
