SkyDeck prides itself on its focus on Berkeley affiliated startups. While we attract students and alumni, we are continually committed to involving UC Berkeley faculty into our program. Faculty have been involved in many of our SkyAlum teams, including Zephyrus Biosciences, Chirp Microsystems and Mentive. On February 7th, we invite faculty from across campus to join us in the discussion about how their work and research can funnel into the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Berkeley.
The event is open to faculty across disciplines, including Economics, Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, Biology, Public Policy, Physics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Design, and Environmental Science. In addition to a panel discussion, SkyDeck will host Shankar Sastry, Dean of the College of Engineering, and Paul Alivisatos, Vice Chancellor for Research to speak.
