Berkeley Founders' Pledge member and current Haas undergrad Jeremy Hammer, who spent six years in the US Navy before entering Cal, has jumped headfirst into Berkeley's entrepreneur ecosystem since arriving on campus in 2017: He started Bear Founders, a Cal-exclusive platform which unifies the Berkeley entrepreneur ecosystem in order to help students and alumni find work opportunities in top Berkeley-founded startups and help startups find resources and funding opportunities; and he also helped coordinate the Inclusion and Entrepreneurship Summit on campus last fall. Jeremy took Bear Founders through the LAUNCH accelerator program, and is currently hotdesking the company at SkyDeck -- in addition to finishing up his degree this coming academic year.
