SkyDeck | Berkeley, one of the most innovative and influential accelerator experiences, is dedicated to fostering excellence in entrepreneurship through the development of confident founders.
Created as a joint venture among UC Berkeley’s College of Engineering, Haas School of Business, and the Vice Chancellor for Research Office, SkyDeck | Berkeley has become the apex startup launchpad for the university.
The SkyDeck facility boasts 10,000 sq ft of premium office space in the heart of downtown Berkeley. The facility, which is just one block from the University, offers a multitude of professional meeting, lecture, and event space.
SkyDeck combines the consulting know-how of traditional accelerators with the vast resources of our research university.
