We are a tribe of makers, hackers, entrepreneurs, digital nomads and ecosystem builders. We believe in putting immediate purpose behind academic talent, frontier technologies, emerging industries and proprietary deal flow. Startup Grind Berkeley takes a scholarly approach to entrepreneurship, local capacity building and civic engagement. Located in the heart of the Bay Area, next to San Francisco and the Silicon Valley, Berkeley is a hotbed of connecting global talent with intellectual property. Our Goal: by connecting the best of Berkeley with a thriving global network, we will inspire radically different people to create valuable projects
