Inspire, Innovate, Dream

The El Cajon Boulevard BIA in partnership with the City Heights Community Development Corp. (CDC) and other local non-profits will hosts its first-ever City Heights Business Expo on Saturday, June 29 to highlight small businesses and micro-enterprises that have received technical and financial assistance from local nonprofits in order to start up, grow and thrive in this unique mid-city neighborhood.

The event aims to showcase a diverse mix of local entrepreneurs, promote innovative business concepts and educate community members on the services and resources available to aspiring business owners. In addition to informational booths, there will also be a variety of local food and product vendors, multi-cultural dance and music performers, and VIP guest speakers.

Representatives from each participating organization will be available to offer hands-on technical support to aspiring new business owners as well as those looking to expand their established businesses. Micro-business lender Accion San Diego will also be on site to provide information about financing options. All resources are being offered free of charge.

Local business owners that have benefited from these community resources are available to share their stories, including Dojo Café (who received technical support from the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation) and Sabor Piri Piri (a pop-up business serving Mozambique cuisine that received technical support from the City Heights CDC).

” I just stumbled upon this restaurant because I was waiting for my car to get detailed. It’s family run and super delicious. I had great service and enjoyed watching the Ethiopian videos. 
They also just started serving beer and wine yesterday which is always a plus! I look forward to coming back here again soon!”

I asked for the traditional vegetarian dish and was pleasantly surprised! It was very filling and delicious!
