SkyDeck Demo Day – Spring 2015

SkyDeck Demo Day – Spring 2015

SkyDeck’s inaugural Demo Day on Thursday, May 21st was a standing-room-only event, with 125 attendees and 70 investors in the audience. We are immensely proud of our teams, who did an outstanding job presenting. The SkyTeams demonstrated the high quality of startups coming from UC Berkeley, and just how serious the University is about fostering a strong ecosystem for entrepreneurs.

The numbers:

70 Investors
125 Total Attendees
22 Teams pitching
15 Volunteers
289 PowerPoint slides

Attendees from campus included Rich Lyons, SkyDeck Board of Directors and Dean of the Business School. Also attending were our SkyDeck Industry Partners, Analog Devices and Ericsson.

The wonderful wine served at the reception was donated by SkyAdvisor Leigh Teece. Our SkyTeam volunteers did a fantastic job of greeting and guiding our guests.

Many thanks to Bee Partners for their sponsorship of the event and for Managing Partner Michael Berolzheimer’s excellent Emcee’ing.

And most of all, congratulations to the Teams for hitting their presentations out of the park. They were rockstars.

Our next Demo Day will be on November 12, 2015.
