Starting something new on your own!

We can help you, while you help the community. This group inspires, encourages and supports Jewish innovation in San Diego.

MARCH WORKSHOP: How do We Reach Our Community? Marketing & Outreach to SD’s Jewish Community/Participants/Organizations. In this workshop we will also cover marketing steps for obvious and available options to reach Jewish San Diego. Since 85% of the community is estimated not to be engaged, using traditional means does not often make inroads to reach nearly the majority. It takes creativity to reach more. We’ll talk about the nuances of doing so through social media, articles, and more. We’ll also workshop as a group several of our own Lab project founders ideas for pilots and answer their questions, challenge them with recommendations. If you want to sign up to workshop your project idea with the Lab, sign up here. We will take up to 3 and allocate 15 minutes each to you.
