Entrepreneurship Resources at Berkeley-Haas

entrepreneur-stock

It’s been over a year since I came to UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business to immerse myself in the vibrant bay area entrepreneurial ecosystem – and I must say, I’m sold. From the top-notch academics, to the entrepreneurial guests who visit campus, to my ambitious and inspiring classmates, there is no shortage of start-up energy at UC Berkeley. 

In the past year at Haas I have been fortunate enough to be a part of some incredible programs and classes, designed for aspiring entrepreneurs. Some of these experiences were inside the classroom as an MBA student, some were part of my duties as a Haas Venture Fellow and supported by the Lester Center for Entrepreneurship, others were sponsored by the Berkeley Entrepreneurs Association (BEA), one of the largest student lead clubs at UC Berkeley. BEA is a must join for any aspiring entrepreneur as they host fantastic events, mixers, speaking engagements, and many more great programs.

Super Saturday: A View from Both Sides of the Table

Early last year, in the midst of my business school application process, I was invited to attend Haas’s Super Saturday, an on-campus, Admissions-led event consisting of lunch, student life and career panels, a campus tour and, most importantly, my Haas interview. Thanks to my stubborn unwillingness to take anything but public transportation and a total unfamiliarity with the Berkeley bus system, I remember arriving at Haas sweaty, semi-lost, and out-of-breath after hauling it through the greater Berkeley campus on an impossibly gorgeous February day. Way to make a good impression, right?
