Regina Bernal is focused on empowering entrepreneurs to turn their venture ideas into a reality. As the Entrepreneurship Manager for the School of Business Administration, she leads and enhances major entrepreneurship opportunities at USD including the V2 Pitch Competition, the Legacy Entrepreneurship Conference and the year-long coaching and mentoring program for student entrepreneurs. At this Salon we will watch Regina's talk from TEDxSanDiego 2016, followed by a discussion of the implications.

Innovation is often thought of within a local context, but in the border region that spans San Diego and Tijuana, entrepreneurs see the world from a very different perspective. In her talk, Regina reveals how the power of innovation, when based on friendship and bi-national cooperation, can benefit both countries.

While recognizing that borders exist for important reasons, such man-made boundaries are invisible to creators who thrive on the sharing of ideas between cultures. They see the strength in coming together and co-creating a model of bi-national cooperation that can serve as an example to the rest of the world.
