We're an extension of the hard-working founders we work with — in the trenches building something bigger than ourselves. I wish The House Fund existed when I was starting off as a founder.

As an undergraduate student at UC Berkeley, Akash co-founded Eventable and ultimately grew the business to profitability with over 30 million end-users. Akash led the company to a successful acquisition by Rockerbox, where he helped launch and grow a SaaS product for leading DTC brands. He was recognized on the Forbes 30 Under 30 2020 list and has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch, and CNBC.

Along the way, Akash has invested in startups and advised founders on go-to-market, product, and fundraising. He has worked with a broad range of entrepreneurs from Olympians to underrepresented students.

Akash is most in his element when working alongside founders — helping craft their story and supporting them as they bring it to fruition.
