About Us

The Xcelerator launched in January 2019 as a joint venture between Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, SCET, and Blockchain at Berkeley. Since then, it has incubated over 40 companies that have raised a total of $25M+ in seed and early stage funding. More than 75% of the inaugural batch raised follow-on funding at or after Demo Day, making the Xcelerator one of the best university-based, non-dilutive blockchain accelerators in the country.

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