It All Starts Here!

The Le Bridge Startup Fellows Program gives students a deep understanding of innovation and the entrepreneurial process. Students learn from world-renowned faculty and entrepreneurs, gain hands-on experience in new venture creation, and build a valuable network of mentors and advisors for both personal and professional development.

We are seeking graduate students from top-tier universities from a range of academic disciplines. We accept highly-motivated self-starters with a demonstrated interest in technology entrepreneurship and innovation.

The program begins each fall semester at UC Berkeley followed by a project incubation program in the spring in San Francisco, Paris, or Ho Chi Minh City.

At UC Berkeley you will take a series of courses providing you hands-on experience in new venture creation and related topics. Part of your work will be outside of the classroom doing customer research, market validation, prototyping, and business model innovation. SCET faculty, technical experts, and local entrepreneurs will conduct lectures, workshops and provide networking opportunities designed to build your skills and enhance your experience.

Get Inspired

The Bay Area has one of the most robust entrepreneurship ecosystems in the world. You will have different choices for organizations, student clubs, and guest lectures. The SCET and SchooLab team will organize visits to leading startups, venture capital firms, accelerators, and established technology companies that will give you unparalleled access to the Silicon Valley network.


The Le Bridge Fellows program takes place in the Fall semester every year at the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology at UC Berkeley.  The students then have the opportunity to do their internship in San Francisco or Paris during the Spring semester

"Le Bridge taught us the American know-how to create a company and iterate quickly, whilst simultaneously opening up a massive network! I wanted to immerse myself in Silicon Valley to learn about its cultural codes which are so specific to startups".
