​About Our Entrepreneurship Activities

​Empowering doers and dreamers.

At USD, entrepreneurship is far from a buzzword—it's a way of life. Nearly 77 percent of sophomores, juniors and seniors have thought about starting their own business. And with demand rising for more innovative and creative business solutions, there's no better place to get your start on changing the world than here.

It's our dream to one day launch the Global Institute for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Our goal is to develop the entrepreneurial spirit within each student—and to equip each one with the knowledge and resources to solve today's most pressing local and global needs. So that you can move beyond "what if"—and achieve "what's next."

With extensive experience in startups, consulting Fortune 500 corporations, coaching executives and contributions to the Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice academic journal, our School of Business faculty are ready to mentor and inspire budding business owners—and to share best practices with seasoned members of the San Diego business community.
