We will be offering three 30% scholarships for this program. The scholarships are earmarked for accredited investors who have been traditionally under-represented in the VC industry, especially women and/or ethnic minorities. These scholarships are jointly offered by 500 Startups and UC Berkeley.
We are looking to identify individuals who will use the knowledge learned in the program to build diverse innovation ecosystems in and around their communities.
