Resources for Entrepreneurs

Innovators portal for the UC Berkeley community |

Berkeley’s vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem extends across virtually every corner of campus and the broad Cal community — from middle and high school students involved with the Young Entrepreneurs at Haas through the energetic undergraduate and graduate student ranks, to world-class postdocs and faculty, and thousands of alumni around the world. Berkeley inventors and entrepreneurs — like Apple’s legendary Steve Wozniak ’86, groundbreaking biologist Jay Keasling, and visionary businessman Dave Gilboa ’03 — have changed the world.
