LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Struggling small business owners are eligible to apply for up to $25,000 in free tech upgrades.

Qualcomm is a global wireless technology company headquartered in San Diego, Calif. As you might imagine, their business has been booming during this pandemic, and now company leaders want to help struggling small business owners during these tough times.

So, Qualcomm has come up with the Small Business Accelerator Program. The company plans to provide 25-50 small businesses across the country with a customized aid package worth up to $25,000.

That aid package could include new laptops, WiFi systems, mobile phones, Bluetooth headsets, and tech support.

"We believe we can actually help some of these businesses transition to an online, digital world and bring the tools and the services that they need to not only be able to survive, but also thrive going forward into the future," said Don McGuire, V.P. of global product marketing at Qualcomm.

Any small business is eligible to apply, as long as they have less than 100 employees. Qualcomm just wants to hear about the story behind your business and the struggles and challenges you're facing because of COVID-19.
