Events for Entrepreneurs

All attendees are required to register in advance prior to receiving a zoom link. 

The San Diego Angel Conference Entrepreneur’s Track (E-Track) has officially launched and you are welcomed to jump in at any point.

This year we’re condensing the training, and leveraging the content from previous years into a reverse classroom style series where the content is dropped in advance followed by interactive Zoom sessions and access to our subject matter experts. We will mix live events, prerecorded content, and Zoom meetings to serve as many entrepreneurs as possible and bring back live Pitch Deconstruction events.
