About Us

The Xcelerator launched in January 2019 as a joint venture between Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, SCET of Berkeley Engineering, and Blockchain at Berkeley. Since then the Xcelerator has accelerated 85 companies that have raised a total of $450M+ in follow-on funding and has now become the 3rd pillar of Berkeley RDI, fulfilling RDI's mission around community and entrepreneurship. More than 60% of our teams have raised follow-on funding, making the Xcelerator one of the best university-based, non-dilutive blockchain accelerators in the world.

We also welcome academics interested in joining us as Visiting Researchers!
