Mooqita at Skydeck
The Mooqita team is excited to take part in another round as a Hot Desk team at SkyDeck. SkyDeck is a UC Berkeley startup accelerator and incubator that was formed through the collaboration of the Haas School of Business, College of Engineering and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research. Its office is located on the penthouse floor of the highest building in downtown Berkeley, and it encompasses a facility for collaboration within an open workspace. What makes SkyDeck stand out from other accelerators - and what makes it a great fit for Mooqita - is that it combines the forces of having strong roots in academia along with industry experience and consulting. SkyDeck currently collaborates with over 115 advisors and 27 partners as well as UC Berkeley faculty and researchers who provide mentorship and resources to the SkyDeck community. Mentorship and advice is provided for legal, financial as well as technical issues that arise with the growth of a startup. SkyDeck does not only accelerate the growth of startups, but it builds strong networking connections with investors, and UC Berkeley alumni within the Silicon Valley. The Mooqita team is enthusiastic about Mooqita’s further development within such an inspiring environment. We want to thank Caroline Winnett, the Executive Director of SkyDeck, and Suzanne Levi, the Program Director, for facilitating another round of hot-desking. We also dedicate a big thank you to Bree Cahill and Gordon Peng for their amazing support with our day-to-day activities.
