SkyDeck Hosts Spring 2017 Demo Day
SkyDeck hosted its fifth biannual Demo Day on Thursday, May 18th. By all accounts, it was our best ever – with over 125 investors attendance to see our 21 presenting SkyTeams. Also attending were our Industry Partners, SkyAdvisors, and campus collaborators for over 175 people in the room to cheer our teams on.
Two Cal Bear VCs kicked off the event. Michael Berolzheimer of Bee Partners expertly warmed up the crowd. Jed Katz of Javelin Ventures talked about his connection with Berkeley and SkyDeck. The program began with Executive Director and Cal Bear Caroline Winnett giving an update to the investors with what’s new at SkyDeck, and a sneak preview of the next cohort.
We are extremely grateful to our event sponsors Bee Partners and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich Rosati (WSGR). The unwavering support of Bee Partners and WSGR, combined with that of our SkyAdvisors and Industry Partners, allows for us to fully utilize our tools to achieve our mission of maximized entrepreneurial activity.
Teams that presented at Demo Day:
- CBJ Global
- Elysian Labs
- Emotive Digital
We are so very proud of our teams and will keep you posted on their continued trajectory.
The next cohort of SkyTeams will on-board in June and our next Demo Day will be in November. We are very excited for our next cohort to begin and work with them to shoot for the moon!
