Berkeley Startups

IPIRA is an integral part of UC Berkeley's entrepreneurship ecosystem. Use this web directory to learn about and leverage the University's vast galaxy of entrepreneurship-related programs, events and resources. For more information about Entrepreneurs at Berkeley, head to the 'Entrepreneurs' section.

This is a partial list of startups that have licensed UC Berkeley intellectual property rights (i.e. patentable inventions and copyrightable software) since about the mid 1990s. These start-ups have used UC Berkeley's intellectual property (IP) rights to strengthen their business plans and thereby improve their prospects for obtaining the venture capital or other funding needed to pursue the commercialization of Berkeley innovations.

Note that this list does not include the numerous start-ups that have commercialized UC Berkeley innovations but did not leverage any UC Berkeley IP rights (because the innovations don't have associated IP rights).
