About Berkeley Startup Cluster

About Berkeley Startup Cluster

The Berkeley Startup Cluster is a collaborative effort of: the City of Berkeley‘s Office of Economic Development, the Downtown Berkeley Association, the Berkeley Chamber of Commerce, UC Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  Our shared goal: making Berkeley an even better place to launch and grow a high tech startup.

Every year, numerous startups spin out of UC Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.  Too many of these young, innovative companies grow outside of Berkeley. This innovation-drain is a lost opportunity for the local economy to benefit from the jobs, creativity, and investment that flow from our world renowned research institutions. The Berkeley Startup Cluster was formed to help make Berkeley a more attractive place for these startups. Being so close to the UC Berkeley campus is just one great thing about this startup community. Other features include:

  • Nearly 70% of Berkeley residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher
  • Terrifically walkable community with access to BART, public transportation, and great bike infrastructure
  • Awesome food! There are over 100 restaurants in our Downtown alone

For startup teams spinning out of the UCB Campus and the Berkeley Lab, locating here allows companies to:

  • Readily collaborate with Campus or Lab colleagues (including collaborations funded by the US government’s STTR and SBIR programs)
  • Easily access the unique publicly-accessible technology development facilities at the Campus and the Lab
  • Keep their residences and commutes intact
  • Conveniently juggle completing their UC Berkeley degree program while pursuing a startup.

The Berkeley Startup Cluster also supports more established tech companies. These enterprises are the backbone of the innovation system here and provide mentorship and expertise to the startup companies here.
