Berkeley-Haas will strengthen entrepreneurship support for its students, including providing $100,000 in seed funding for Haas student startups this year, according to Dean Rich Lyons.
In addition to seed funding, Berkeley-Haas plans to enhance its offerings for both MBA and undergraduate students who wish to learn more about entrepreneurship, or are already working at startups or founding their own companies.
“Our student entrepreneurs are already thriving within the Berkeley-Haas and Bay Area startup ecosystem,” Lyons says. “This new effort will continue to build on and expand that success, creating a new gen-eration of leaders who will be mixing with alumni and giving back to the entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
Berkeley-Haas will pool a variety of resources from across the Haas School to integrate entrepreneurial thinking throughout the Haas student experience under a new umbrella organization, called the Berkeley-Haas Entrepreneurship Program (BHEP).
A new website has been launched for the Berkeley-Haas Entrepreneurship Program which features convenient access to student services and a new mobile-friendly design.
