Entrepreneurship Best Practices Crossing Borders

The goal of the Global Venture Network is to share best practices to foster innovation and entrepreneurship in a university environment with the intent to help create new companies and industries. GVL strives to develop an entrepreneurial ecosystem that supports venture creation and innovation between Berkeley and global partners. Industry-changing innovation and leadership stretch well beyond geographical boundaries at GVL.
