The Berkeley Chamber, with support from the Berkeley Startup Cluster and City of Berkeley's Office of Economic Development (OED), will be hosting a spinoff to our successful, long-running event, the Berkeley Visionary Awards.
The Berkeley Visionary Lab event series in 2018 is meant to create regular opportunities for our city’s leading entrepreneurs and innovators to interact with elected officials, other local businesses, and the broader Berkeley community.
