Berkeley SkyDeck is UC Berkeley’s largest startup accelerator since 2012 — moving over 300 startups through its doors. SkyDeck has built a reputation for helping some of Berkeley’s top founders build their companies through its focus on deep technology that can change the world. This past week, Berkeley MEng students were able to network exclusively with Berkeley’s startups in areas including Robotics, Space, AI, VR/AR, Software and more. These startups are backed by some of Silicon Valley’s top venture capital firms and are on their way to building the next unicorns. “It was a great opportunity for SkyDeck alumni companies and startups that have spun out of the MEng program to come back and recruit talent from the MEng program. It was exciting to hear the newest iterations on their products and services and watch current students pitch their skills and expertise to these growing companies.” — Julie McShane, Director, Career Development & Alumni Relations Startup Highlights Xendit: Making sending money as simple and user-friendly as possible.
