Last month, Berkeleyside held its second Local Business Forum, concentrating on “Startup Berkeley” — the strengths and weaknesses of the city for startups. If you weren’t able to attend, or if you just want a quick refresher on the evening, we’ve condensed the two hours into a little more than six minutes of highlights (above).

Speakers at the Forum were Mayor Tom Bates’ chief of staff, Judy Iglehart, Stupid Fun Club founder Will Wright, MOG founder and CEO David Hyman, Qeyno Labs founder Kalimah Priforce, The Still Room founder June Taylor, Mechanics Bank’s Rauly Butler, and Lester Center for Entrepreneurship director Andre Marquis.
