But wait what’s a Geekbear?

It all links back to our founder’s ties to UC Berkeley where he went for his graduate studies, helped lead UC Berkeley’s Entrepreneurship Association and founded Geekbears and the university’s deep ties
to the tech community. Paying homage to tech’s self-confessed geeks and the school’s mascot, the California Golden Bears, the name Geekbears was born.
