The big night….


On V2’s big evening, USD and student-entrepreneurs from Mexico pitch to a panel of Angel investors for an opportunity to win up to $30,000 in cash and in-kind prizes for their projects.  It has been called  “Shark Tank meets academia.” We are excited to welcome Felena Hanson, Founder of Hera Hub, as our keynote speaker this year. Felena’s always ahead of the curve with entrepreneurial ideas and she’s sure to provide insight and inspiration.


Come enjoy Free Refreshments and much more. This is also an awesome opportunity to network with entrepreneurs from all over San Diego and USD Alumni.
