Knowledge Network.
Cal has some of the most brilliant minds and daring businesses in the world. Tesla. Apple. Intel. But it has never had a place to unite its entrepreneurs, until now.

This is The House.

We believe in Berkeley startups.
To join The House, we’ll talk to any bold startup who has at least one founder who is a UC Berkeley alumni, faculty member, student, or affiliate.
We make 2 types of investments:
Pre-Seed
Up to
$500,000
We like to be the first investor and are also happy to participate as part of a syndicate.
Early-Stage
Up to
$1,000,000
We'll follow a strong lead investor and participate as part of a Seed syndicate.
The energy, network and resources that The House brings to Berkeley are changing the landscape of entrepreneurship at Cal. They are bringing together the best resources and building a pathway of support for founders at all stages — whether it’s one of my students or a serial entrepreneur — to be successful. Berkeley has been waiting for this.
Jeremy and The House Fund were one of our earliest supporters at Superhuman. They were helpful with recruiting and investor intros during our Series A, and evangelized Superhuman far and wide. Just like they did for us, they work relentlessly for their startups. This is THE fund that Berkeley has always needed.
We are excited to work with The House Fund to invest in UC innovation and build a pioneering University venture fund.
The House is long overdue. The opportunity at Berkeley is tremendous. It’s been more difficult than we like to find all those opportunities... The House provides a single source of opportunities for us Series A investors.
