​Kickstart your start-up.

You could be one event away from finding inspiration for your venture—or meeting the very people who will help fund it. So we invite you to register for our leadership conferences and campus-wide venture challenges. While space is limited, there's no cap on the learning or networking you'll get to experience.


You've got the idea. Now you just need a shot at making it happen. Through our annual Venture Vetting (V2) Challenge, you'll present your venture to real angel investors for a chance at winning up to $100,000 to start your business.

Here's how to enter:

  • Craft a 10-slide, 7-minute PowerPoint or Prezi file (Pitch Deck) describing your venture and funding goal.
  • Send your Pitch Deck to usdv2competition@gmail.com by the deadline April 6th, 2017.
  • Check our website to see if your venture made it as a finalist.
