The House is a startup institute built for Berkeley, and home to Berkeley’s founders.
We help build foundations for great businesses with a support platform providing founders at all stages with what they need, when they need it. We’re working with exceptional founders to build the next generation of Berkeley’s top startups through our affiliated venture fund (The House Fund), accelerator program (The House Residency), and student community.
HOW WE’RE DIFFERENT
We designed our model to provide hyper-personalized, flexible support to founders from inception to exit regardless of stage, experience, or timeline. This full pipeline of support was built by and for Berkeley founders. Find out more about what sets us apart here.
Since our 2016 launch, we’ve backed over 50 startups with a roughly even split amongst faculty founders, students preparing to pursue their venture full-time, alumni of the graduate programs, and alumni of the undergraduate programs.
