December 18,2014 (El Cajon) –Imagine a place where people who want to start new businesses in East County can have free space, resources and investors—if they pledge to provide jobs here in East County. That’s the concept that Noori Barka, president of Calbiotech and a leader in the Iraqi-Chaldean community in El Cajon, aspires to attain by starting up an incubator business concept here. He’s helped to launch a new 501c3 nonprofit, the San Diego East County Business Incubator with a goal of opening its doors next year.
“If you have an idea, you want to start a business…we will incubate you for up to three years and during this time we will give you the full support,” Barka told East County Magazine. Start-up businesses will be given space, tools, expertise, and investors. After graduating in three years, people can receive continuing support – provided that they launch new businesses in East County.
Barka hopes to create good-paying jobs in the biotech industry and other fields, helping to solve the high unemployment in East County, particularly among the new immigrant community, where unemployment is nearly 50 percent.
