Go Global San Diego has laid out the facts. If San Diego wants to compete in a global marketplace, it must encourage companies to increase their global engagement. JPMorgan Chase & Co. has stepped up to the plate to catalyze small and medium sized enterprises to take their businesses to the rest of the world.

At the Go Global San Diego Summit on Wednesday, San Diego Regional EDC and JPMorgan Chase announced the MetroConnect Prize. MetroConnect will provide selected company with up to $10,000 in matching funds to cover up to 50 percent of the costs associated with the company’s next steps to going global.

Thanks to support from the JPMorgan Chase & Co., San Diego Regional EDC will award the MetroConnect Prize to at least 20 companies trying to take their innovative products abroad, secure strategic partnerships and boost international sales, that ultimately translates into increased economic activity in San Diego.

Deadline to apply is May 4. Head over to MetroconnectSD.org to learn more and apply.
