We believe in the technology we produce. It’s one of the reasons we’re set up in a way that allows a large portion of our workforce to work from home productively. Many small businesses, which have been particularly hard hit by this pandemic, are not as fortunate. With the need for connectivity at an all-time high, we find ourselves in a unique position to help.

In this episode, we spoke with Cristiano Amon, President, Qualcomm Incorporated and Jeff Monday, Vice President, Sales, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. about the new Qualcomm® Small Business Accelerator Program. Through this new initiative, we’ll supply traditional small businesses with equipment, software, and services to help them transition to a mobile-first and remote-friendly work environment.

Cristiano and Jeff, along with host PJ Jacobowitz, discuss the program’s launch, some of the first partners on board, resources that will be available to program participants, and how the pandemic is amplifying the need for 5G.
