CONNECT ALL @ the Jacobs Center (CAJC) is the San Diego region’s first diversity focused business accelerator program for diverse and financially disadvantaged founders of San Diego-based, early-stage startups poised for growth and job creation. As part of the new program, KCM Group is leading the renovation project of existing Jacobs Center facilities to serve as the onsite business resource center. This project is funded by a $2.5-million Community Development Block Grant secured by the City of San Diego Economic Development Department through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and private funding from partners, such as MUFG Union Bank N.A. and bkm OfficeWorks.
Located in a specially designed 4,300-square-foot business accelerator space in Joe and Vi Jacobs Center in Southeastern San Diego, CAJC also offers a no-cost Business Resource Center where entrepreneurs “not quite ready for the accelerator” and others can learn about local services and support programs to help move their ideas and businesses forward.
