Mission & Vision

The mission of BPEP is to foster entrepreneurship among UC Berkeley’s postdocs, visiting scholars and graduate students, through education, awareness, and hands-on opportunities. We connect aspiring entrepreneurs with mentors, resources, and partners. Situated in a vibrant business climate and with access to the greatest pool of postdoc talent in the world, BPEP catalyzes productive collaboration on scientifically complex challenges with lasting economic benefits.

The vision of the Berkeley Postdoc Entrepreneurship Program (BPEP) is to create an empowered UC Berkeley postdoctoral and graduate student community by providing them tools to translate their research to products via startups.

"Idea to Funding" Workshop Series

The Berkeley Postdoc Entrepreneurship Program organizes a monthly workshop series titled "Idea to funding". Since most postdocs and graduate students might potentially start their entrepreneurship journey, the workshop series will primarily focus on education and resources needed for the very initial stages of the journey. Check out the calendar and make sure you register for future events.
