The Innovation Showcase, Saturday August 1 at 10am


The Innovation Showcase is the final event of the summer where startup teams will present to industry experts, CEO’s and founders of high-growth startups, other experienced entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and angel investors.

Everyone is welcome to attend! Please join us to see what we have been up to since we started at the REC back in March!

Each of the startups will deliver a two-minute pitch sharing information about the companies they have been working to get ready to launch. They will share their progress and the audience will have the chance to provide feedback and ask questions.

Winners of REC innovation Showcase pitch competition will have the chance to present at the 2021 Angel Investors Conference where over $200K is guaranteed to be invested (entry fee, preparation and coaching will be provided for winners).

About REC Innovation Lab:

The San Diego Miramar College REC Innovation Lab launched its first cohort in March, just as shut-down orders were being issued across California. We had to quickly pivot to a virtual environment to ensure that everyone had access to the information and services needed to continue building their businesses remotely.

Since launching on March 4th, The REC has held more than 147 virtual events. All of the presentation recordings are available on our YouTube channel.
