UC Berkeley & Berkeley-Haas were well-represented at National NSF I-Corps with a whopping six teams including, two female-founders (both MDs!)
Respira Labs: led by Launch: The University of California’s Startup Accelerator standout Maria Alexandra Artunduaga with Industry Mentor Cathy Schwallie Farmer from Skydeck Berkeley
Coreshell Technologies: UCB alums
Heliobiosys: UCB alums
S2E Scientific: faculty-led team from the Coates Lab/Energy Biosciences Institute
Bonus shoutout to Project Lightning (attending the Austin cohort), led by Yun Rhie (MBA 16) and Berkeley Lab Team Timiras (3D Bioprinting) at the Austin cohort.
We will be channeling our inner Bears to be “relentlessly direct” for the next 6 weeks. Teams will use their $25-50k grants to secure 100+ customer discovery interviews in the quest for product-market fit.
