UC Berkeley SkyDeck Takes Its Moonshot and Aims to Become Global Hub for Entrepreneurship

BERKELEY, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 15, 2018 / UC Berkeley SkyDeck, the largest official startup accelerator of the University of California at Berkeley (UC Berkeley), is where game-changing ideas, global resources, and research excellence come together to develop businesses which positively impact the world. Growing extremely rapidly over the last four years, SkyDeck recently has doubled in size with an additional floor of office space, has closed a $24 million venture fund, tripled the size of its advisor group, and broadened its global reach so half of its startup cohort comes from outside the U.S. Berkeley SkyDeck also stands alone as the only accelerator which provides funding for its startups via a public-private partnership, bringing funds back to UC Berkeley with the Berkeley SkyDeck Fund, a dedicated investment fund.
