SCET's global programs that are designed for entrepreneurs around the world


Our global programs are designed to build a worldwide innovation network and knowledge exchange to spread successful innovation models around the globe. Globally, we partner with universities to help them implement the Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship, our unique approach to teaching innovation which helps educators instill an innovation mindset in their students. Additionally, we help global entrepreneurs and innovators commercialize new technology and dive in to deep research in our field.



The Global Innovation Collider is the international academic partners program at the Sutardja Center. Select universities are chosen on an annual basis for a three year partnership that allows the institution to collaborate with the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology (SCET) in the various ways.
