The House Fund was one of our earliest supporters. They were helpful with recruiting and investor intros in Series A, and evangelized Superhuman far and wide. They work relentlessly for their startups. This is THE fund that Berkeley has always needed.

Co-Founder, Superhuman

We are excited to work with The House Fund to invest in UC innovation and build a pioneering University venture fund. They're really adding to the Berkeley startup ecosystem and providing a huge value add to Berkeley entrepreneurs.

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.
