Deirdre O'Donnell,

Qualcomm has set up the Small Business Accelerator Program to help selected independent enterprises with their ability to integrate and leverage technological solutions in their operations. This new grant system is intended to promote both in the Covid-19 era. Therefore, successful applicants stand to gain some relevant equipment as well as the advice and support necessary to make it work for their business.

The Small Business Accelerator Program has been made open to eligible companies from the 50 US states and the District of Columbia, and received 375 submissions from 39 of these regions. Of these, 33 were selected as the first recipients of its awards. These businesses were described as working in areas from cleantech and electric vehicle charging to musical instruction.

Qualcomm solicited the devices and support these businesses stand to gain from partners such as Bose and Jabra (who donated Bluetooth headsets); Motorola and Samsung (who supplied phones and also units of the 4G Galaxy Book S); Lenovo (5G PCs); Microsoft (4G PCs and software); Linksys (Wi-Fi network equipment); Targus (docking stations) and Verizon Business.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
