We asked three San Diego business owners for their take on the region’s business climate Tuesday. Their answers fit the one constant we’ve learned while trying to understand how hard it is for businesses to operate here: Everyone’s got a different perspective.
The trio of business owners Tuesday gathered at Red Door Interactive in East Village to talk about the triumphs, challenges and tough decisions they’ve made during their time in San Diego.
Red Door CEO Reid Carr, whose company provides marketing services for other companies, was first up.
Carr, a Voice of San Diego board member, founded his company about a decade ago and has worked out of three downtown spaces. He talked about how one business-boosting nonprofit helped him at one location: The Downtown San Diego Partnership helped Red Door clear human feces from its front entrance on a regular basis.
