San Diego is supporting small business in a big way

Jun 10, 2019 - Bernadine Locsin

San Diego Regional EDC just announced that top local employers, like San Diego Padres, San Diego Gas & Electric, and Booz Allen Hamilton, have committed to a new regional goal of creating 50,000 new quality jobs in small businesses by 2030. We know what you're thinking: why should I care? You should care because small businesses drive our economy. In its new interactive web study, EDC shows us why small businesses matter and why supporting them benefits all San Diegans.

We're all about supporting San Diego small businesses - those that employ less than 100 people. And we've featured many of them on #TakeoverTuesday. So here's a list of our favorite takeovers from small businesses making a big impact:

1. Aira

Aira stands for Artificial Intelligence Remote Assistance. This local tech company leverages existing technologies, like smart glasses and mobile devices, to help people with blind and low vision become more productive and independent. Besides featuring Aira on #TakeoverTuesday, we also highlighted Co-Founder Watson Yim and Senior Software Engineer Enrico Casini in some talent videos. You could say we're big fans of theirs.
