  3. Use LinkedIn for discovery, then contact Haas and UC Berkeley alumni directly through the @cal Alumni Directory.


NYTimes Interview

Berkeley Founders' Pledge Connects Cal Entrepreneurs, Makes Giving and Receiving Easier
UC Berkeley is learning how to support its alumni entrepreneurs while making philanthropy a key part of the equation. Through the Berkeley Founders' Pledge, Cal alumni and faculty at startups can stay connected to the campus ecosystem as their companies grow, and then, hopefully, fulfill a non-binding pledge to support Berkeley upon a liquidity event.
