Idea Labs

      1. The Idea Labs series is a catalyst for innovation and entrepreneurship at the University of San Diego. Idea Labs prepare students from all USD majors and programs at the graduate and undergraduate levels at USD as well as participating External Track schools (University of California San Diego, San Diego State University, Point Loma Nazarene University, San Diego City College) to enter the $50,000 Social Innovation Challenge or the $20,000 External Track of the Social Innovation Challenge, the V2 (Venture Vetting) Competition, or even both (subject to eligibility).

        Alumni: We invite you to attend the Idea Labs series and meet USD's new generation of entrepreneurs who are interested in enterprises that address the 4 Ps- people, planet, peace and profit. Join us as we inspire and educate.
