Berkeley Postdoctoral Entrepreneurs Program (BPEP) aims to foster entrepreneurship in the UC Berkeley postdoctoral and graduate community. We provide tools, mentoring, and a platform for science-business communication to enable research innovations to move into the marketplace.  We believe entrepreneurship is an integral part of UC Berkeley's ethos, and aim to build a community of entrepreneurship among UC Berkeley's postdocs.
