Venture Vetting (V2) is a campus-wide entrepreneurship competition where the venture and the entrepreneur, rather than the Business Plan, are vetted by potential investors. USD students present their business idea to a panel of angel investors through a pitch deck presentation and one-on-one session. Semi-finalists participate in a poster-board session.
V2 has awarded $15,000 in cash prizes to students since its beginning in 2012. V2 is organized by the School of Business and is open to all University of San Diego students at all levels of study.
