The event will take place at the University of San Diego's Joan B. Kroc Institute of Peace and Justice Theater at 1:00 p.m. with a reception including light refreshments to follow.

The new center will provide no-cost services and opportunities for both start-ups and established technology-oriented companies in San Diego County and will be hosted at the University of San Diego through a partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration and the San Diego and Imperial SBDC Regional Network. The new center will offer services including general business consulting, technology consulting, training programs, networking and support resources, mentoring programs, funding and financing consultation, and community events.

The University of San Diego engages and partners with its communities as a proactive agent in sustainable and innovation-driven economic growth and social prosperity. Its mission is grounded in offering students the training, mentorship, and mindset development needed to launch successful businesses and social enterprises both locally and around the world. Through a multi-disciplinary joint effort among USD’s School of Business, Professional and Continuing Education, the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies, and the Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering, the center aims to further innovation and the sustainable economic development of the community.

The University of San Diego SBDC is part of the San Diego and Imperial SBDC Network and led by the regional office at Southwestern College. For more information, visit or contact Karolina Rzadkowolska, strategic initiatives manager, at or 619-260-7539.
