City as a Startup

Berkeley SkyDeck Accelerator - 2150 Shattuck Ave Berkeley, 94704 Berkeley

About this event

Join us on September 24th from 7-9:30 pm at Berkeley SkyDeck for our Ribbon Cutting as we co-found Startup Grind Berkeley with the Mayor's Office! We're bringing together a community of 1.5 million people around the world, in 400+ cities.

Mayor Arreguín and Councilman Bartlett will share their insights on the local economy, small businesses, public-private partnerships and entrepreneurship. We will also delve into the Councilman's municipal token offering, which will revolutionize micro-bonds at the city level. We will focus discussion around bridging academic, public and private sectors to encourage civic engagement.

Philz coffee has generously partnered with us to establish our first Base Camp! We're also having a co-working day at their Downtown Berkeley location (1600 Shattuck Ave #100, Berkeley, CA 94709) from 10 am to 5:30 pm on the 24th (event day).

If you need a space to get some work done, get insights on your idea/initiative, or would like to meet our team personally, swing by during that time window! They'll also be upgrading small coffees to a large at no extra cost for members of our community :)

See you soon!
