It is promised that the Inglewood-based dome will deliver an ‘innovative fan and consumer experience’, and become a hub for programs that ‘power economic prosperity and benefit the community’.
Steve Ballmer, LA Clippers Chairman, commented: “When we began the search for a partner for the LA Clippers and our new dome, we looked for one that shares our passion for technology, the pursuit of innovation and our commitment to customers, fans and community.
“Intuit is a perfect fit and we’re excited to be calling our future home the Intuit Dome.”
The partners aim to create new programs that ‘reinvigorate’ the local economy and businesses to create jobs, enable job readiness, and educate entrepreneurs to help them run businesses and better their financial lives.
The technology platform has agreed to expand its Prosperity Hub School District program, provide taxpayer assistance events to prepare and file taxes for low-income families in the area free of charge during tax season, and to also host educational events.
This is in the aid of local entrepreneurs and small business owners, including women or minority-owned enterprises , in leveraging workshops, networking, tools, education, and gaining tips on how to start, build, and grow a small business.
Sasan Goodarzi, Intuit Chief Executive Officer, stated: “The Intuit Dome will reflect Intuit’s focus on innovation to deliver best-in-class products and services including TurboTax, QuickBooks, Mint and Credit Karma to help our customers achieve their financial goals.”
The Dome has been designed in a bid to create an intimate and intense fan experience through features such as ‘The Wall’ which consists of 51 rows of seats with a dedicated supporters section and an 80,000 square foot outdoor plaza, surrounding an outdoor court.
Goodarzi added: “Intuit and the Clippers have a history of supporting local communities, and we look forward to investing in and contributing to the Inglewood community to help them prosper.”
The completed dome is estimated to generate $260 million economic activity each year.
