    Organized by the USD School of Business Catalyzer, the V2 Pitch Competition is our annual campuswide entrepreneurial student pitch competition that gives USD students the opportunity to win seed money to take their ideas to the next level.

    By attending, you will:

    • Refine your own pitching skills when you hear three pitches from student finalists plus investor debriefs in response to the pitches. Whether you are pitching to an investor or to your boss at work, these skills are invaluable!
