With the incredible network of talent here at Berkeley, we are launching our SkyTalk series this February to harness that knowledge for our entrepreneurs. Our first talk will be held on February 7th featuring entrepreneur, early stage investor and author Brad Feld, followed by our “Meet the VCs” talk on February 28th.
Notable in our startup community for writing Venture Deals, Brad Feld will talk about how to best build and structure a startup community in Berkeley. He co-founded Foundry Group and Mobius Venture Capital and, prior to that, founded Intensity Ventures. Brad is also a co-founder of Techstars. In addition, he is currently chair of the National Center for Women & Information Technology and on the boards of Path Forward, the Kauffman Fellows, and Defy Ventures.
At our “Meet the VCs” talk on February 28th, we welcome Roelof Botha from Sequoia Capital and Rebecca Lynn from Canvas Ventures. Both speakers are seasoned investors and entrepreneurs and the event will be tailored to the perspective of our Berkeley startups in the early stages of funding.
