Forty-three tents lined the Campanile Walkway on the SDSU campus during the fourth annual Entrepreneur Day held on March 12, 2013. In each tent, eager entrepreneurs, most of whom are current or former SDSU students, showcased their businesses to the public, some for the very first time.

A number of the organizations represented at the event, including Volcom, Oggi's Pizza and Brewing Company and Rubio's Fresh Mexican Grill, are well-established businesses that count SDSU alumni as officers or founders among their ranks. Other businesses, like Mila Flats and State Bike Doctor, are in the early stages of their product launch and attended the event to raise their visibility.

Among the new businesses there were 18 Lavin Entrepreneurs. The Lavin Entrepreneur Program consists of a group of talented undergraduate students selected by the Lavin Entrepreneurship Center to receive two years of mentoring and assistance from the center and local business people to help launch them into their entrepreneurial careers.
