Formed as a partnership between the Haas School of Business, the College of Engineering, and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, SkyDeck combines the consulting know-how of traditional accelerators with the vast resources of its research university.
This robust partnership is coupled with SkyDeck’s unique mentorship program to create a powerful environment for startups. Its SkyAdvisors, Partners, and large network of accredited investors connect their SkyTeams to the expertise and capital they need to launch and grow…to the moon.
SkyDeck’s office is on the penthouse floor of the tallest building in Downtown Berkeley. We have spectacular views of the UC Berkeley campus as well as the San Francisco Bay.
Our office consists of designated workspaces for our cohort teams, open workspaces for hot-deskers, a large event space, a community kitchen, various sized rooms for private meetings, and a hardware room for tinkerers. Our teams have access to these amenities for NO FEES AND NO EQUITY.
We also have a large and active network of accredited investors, who are invited to attend our Demo Day at the end of each cohort session. Read about our most recent Demo Day here.
