Power to the Entrepreneurs: A conversation with USD law professor Donna Matias

At a time when political leaders are talking a lot about the need to create jobs from the top down, Donna Matias is taking more of a bottom-up approach. Matias and her colleagues at the Entrepreneurship Clinic at the University of San Diego Law School provide pro bono legal services to San Diego entrepreneurs.

We sat down with Matias to learn more about how her organization works to help low-income entrepreneurs overcome the regulatory hurdles that so often make it difficult for small businesses to succeed.

Produced by Paul Feine and Alex Manning.
