About Berkeley Skydeck Fund:
The Berkeley SkyDeck Fund is the investment partner for UC Berkeley’s SkyDeck Accelerator Program. They invest $100K into each startup that goes through SkyDeck, as well as participate in later stage investment rounds with Berkeley founders. They are a very active investor in the Bay Area, typically making over 40 investments each year. In a first-of-its-kind, public-private partnership, the Berkeley SkyDeck Fund shares one-half of fund profits with UC Berkeley.
