Welcome to The Local Buzz, your inside scoop on San Diego’s tech scene. Keep up to date on our Fresh Brewed Tech website.
I hope you are all staying safe and healthy during the quarantine. With this new “normal” of our lifestyles and work setting in, it’s incredible to see our community come together and our resiliency to help our health care workers continue to save lives. This week, our senior writer Andrea Siedsma had the chance to connect with a UC San Diego researcher on his lab’s work to find a cure for COVID-19 . We also have started aggregating content on local companies that are helping with the crisis , including pivoting a business model or utilizing a core strength to activate a response. Thank you to these companies - they are perfect examples of San Diego’s collaborative and supportive culture. Please read and share the article and then send us links that we are missing by replying to this newsletter. We also want to continue to help our clients and the community find resources needed and are compiling a list here

While a lot is being done to support our community, I know a lot of you are also attempting to make business as usual for yourself and your company. Let us know how we can help by replying to this newsletter and we’ll help connect you however we can. 

Stay strong & stay home,
