    The House is a startup institute built for Berkeley, and home to Berkeley's founders. The House helps build foundations for great businesses with a support platform providing founders at all stages with what they need, when they need it. The group works 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. The House Fund is the first fund fully focused on Berkeley. It is an affiliated pre-seed and early stage venture capital fund investing in Berkeley's top student, faculty, and alumni startups. Pre-seed investments are made up to $100,000. Early stage investments are made up to $250,000 in funding for 10% equity. For teams with lesser capital needs, they offer a $150,000 for 7% path. The House Residency is an Accelerator program built to provide Berkeley students, faculty, and alumni with what they need, when they need it, to turn a startup into a scaleable, venture backable business. The Accelerator offers investments (up to $120k) to all companies that join the program and works with its companies to raise their seed and Series A rounds of financing to prepare them for growth.
