Mysty Rusk, director of The Brink Small Business Development Center, was named a Top 50 Influential Leader by San Diego publication, The Daily Transcript. She was recognized for her work helping local companies raise over $2.7 million in startup funding. This achievement also contributed to The Brink being designated the number one startup accelerator in San Diego in less than one year since its inception. 

"The Brink SBDC at USD's crowning achievement was the successful launch of the San Diego Angel Conference [last March], demonstrating that San Diego has deals worth funding investors writing checks to move world-changing projects forward," said Rusk.

The Brink launched in January 2018 and is the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the University of San Diego. It offers world-class business consulting along with relevant and insightful guidance to growth-oriented, innovation-based entrepreneurs running small businesses.
