Speed Networking - Featured Speaker: Jeff Burton, Executive Director of SkyDeck
Wednesday, March 26, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
We'll start with 30 minutes of speed networking, where the goal is to meet everyone in the room. We are a social group by nature, and this activity will increase the number and quality of connections you make through Haas alumni events.
Afterward, we will learn about an exciting new technology startup accelerator that the Haas School of Business is driving. Jeff Burton, Executive Director of SkyDeck | Berkeley, will provide an overview of current programs and the entrepreneurial teams at SkyDeck and discuss ways Haas alumni are involved as both supporters and volunteers. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how you can get involved and support the next generation of job creators.
