Entrepreneurship is an efficient path from academic research to industrial impact. As a co-founder of Ambi Robotics, I have been extremely impressed by Jeremy and Cameron and the people they bring together. I greatly appreciate how The House Fund exemplifies UC Berkeley's shared values of rigor, diversity, integrity, and determination.
