Success at the Berkeley Entrepreneur’s Expo

Success at the Berkeley Entrepreneur’s Expo

The SkyDeck, along with The CITRIS Foundry and Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology, co-produced the Entrepreneur’s Expo event that breached previous expectations. The event broadcasted the strengthening entrepreneurial ecosystem in Berkeley and its success was attributed to the accumulation of efforts from campus incubators, accelerators, centers, departments and organizations.

In addition, about ten SkyTeams offered table displays. Over 800 attendees were exposed to the entrepreneurship in action, and SkyTeam Localwise spearheaded a job fair for students interested in joining the innovation movement.

 

The energy at the event was outstanding as the volume of attendees was consistently high. The open structure of the event allowed participants to freely engage with the tabled organizations and explore the innovation housed in Berkeley.
