2020 San Diego

Angel Conference


March 28, University of San Diego

See which company secures an investment of $200,000 and discover what’s happening in the local ecosystem


Investors say there aren’t enough deals here in San Diego. Entrepreneurs would say there are no funding opportunities available. The San Diego Angel Conference set out to bridge that gap. In the inaugural event last year, over $500,000 was invested directly in connection with the conference.

Entrepreneur Track

In the fall, entrepreneurs gathered for a months-long workshop series to prepare for the conference. They practiced their pitches and learned the essentials of seeking angel investment.

Investor Track

After the application deadline in December, the group of investors participating in the conference fund started to review companies. Week after week they narrowed the field, heard pitches, and engaged in debate. For many investors, this is their first exposure to the angel process.

March 28 – Main Conference Event

Join us to watch the six finalists give their final pitch after completing due diligence and months of review. One company will walk away with an investment of $200,000 as voted upon by the angel investors at the event. In between, hear from innovators that are pushing the ecosystem forward.

Featured Talks & Speakers

The San Diego Angel Conference isn’t solely about hearing the finalist pitches and learning which companies secure an investment. Attendees have the opportunity to hear from leaders in the ecosystem and learn from their stories.
