Berkeley City Councilmembers Tour CITRIS and learn about ways CITRIS is advancing information technology in the interest of society.
Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin and City Councilmembers Kate Harrison (District 4), Sophie Hahn (District 5), and Rigel Robinson (District 7) toured the CITRIS Invention Lab and CITRIS Tech Museum on Tuesday, March 5, 2019. They learned about the ways CITRIS is advancing information technology in the interest of society through the CITRIS Policy Lab, helping create an equal playing field for women in tech through the Women in Tech Initiative, and supporting over 48 “deep tech” startups through the CITRIS Foundry. This was the first stop on the Innovation Assets tours that the Berkeley Startup Cluster has organized for Berkeley City Council for 2019.
The Berkeley Startup Cluster was formed to help make Berkeley more attractive to startups that wish to locate our city, especially those spinning out of UC Berkeley and the Berkeley Lab. They also help the local economy benefit from the corresponding jobs, creativity and investment that ensue.
