In our conversation with Riddhi Khanna from UC Berkeley SkyDeck, moderated by Jon French, Director at U of T Entrepreneurship, we explored the ecosystem in the Bay Area, discussed what it takes to build a business there, and how to raise money from U.S. investors, with insights from the perspectives of a founder and an investor. Sukhman Dulay and William Christodoulou, co-founders of Cyder, also shared their perspective of building the startup there and their experience with SkyDeck.
