We will also have the following funds in attendance and ready to meet with students:

Free Ventures, UC Berkeley's nonprofit, student-run startup accelerator,
Dorm Room Fund, a student-run venture fund backed by First Round,
The Trione Student Venture Fund which provides $5,000 grants and office space to early-stage startups involving current Haas students.
The day will be divided into four parts:

The morning will showcase six of the 12 classes from this Fall with an intro from the instructor, one student team presenting their project, followed by Q&A and feedback from a panel of judges.
Lunch & Networking with SCET students and instructors. Lunch will be provided, so be sure to RSVP to reserve your spot for food!
The afternoon will showcase the remaining 6 classes from this Fall with an intro from the instructor, one student team presenting their project, followed by Q&A and feedback from a panel of judges.
