All the money and tech talent in San Diego tends to collect north of Interstate 8 – and with them, startups proliferate. But a new effort in Chollas Creek intends to route some of that entrepreneurial support down south, and organizers are looking to a diverse group of founders to make that happen.

Entrepreneurs who are admitted to the accelerator will get free office space for six months along with access to workshops, a network of mentors and help finding investment capital.
