Recording: How SkyDeck’s Startups Fund Their University, Mar 5, 2019

Speakers

UC Berkeley's SkyDeck stands alone as the only accelerator to provide funding for its startups via a public-private partnership, bringing funds back to the university, with the Berkeley SkyDeck Fund, a dedicated investment fund. Educational institutions face an interesting paradox: scrambling for funding while producing brilliant founders with world-changing innovations. SkyDeck experience shows that start-ups poised for success can be long-term investments for the universities that fund them.
