Sagrado Corazón University
Goal: Establish Santurce as a center of business innovation that can serve as a replicable model for urban revitalization.
EDA provided $1.9 million in grant funding to Sagrado Corazón University to renovate two vacant warehouses in the Santurce section of San Juan. The grant is expected to leverage $1.5 million in private investment and provide space for entrepreneurs in the creative industries to support the creation of 75 jobs. This effort will be spearheaded by the Nuestro Barrio Creative Industries Acceleration and Commercialization Program at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón.
