Frequently Asked Questions
What is Berkeley Startup Housing?
A residential startup incubator for UC Berkeley students to live and breathe entrepreneurship when not doing class work.
What type of projects will you accept?
We accept all student startups, and seek a diversity covering everything for mobile apps to social ventures to quirky startup ideas we could never have imagined! Overall, we want smart, creative individuals who are highly passionate about their projects.
Do you accept only already formed teams or do you accept individuals?
We accept both. If you're on a team, your entire team doesn't have to live at the house, it could be just one of you. Also, our house is a great place to find partners and additional members for your team.
Do you accept only projects/startups in progress, or do you also accept ideas?
Ideas will also do, and we expect that anyone who moves into one of our houses is serious about pursuing their vision.
Will there be a demo day?
We will be holding periodic pitch sessions, and in the past we've attracted both Venture Capital and Angel investors to these events..
What are the application requirements?
Just fill out the form for now, and we'll get back to you if more documentation is needed.
How much would the rent be?
We estimate approximately between $700 - $1400, depending on the choice between single, double, triple, and quad rooms. Final prices will depend on many teams that gets accepted, and how many singles, doubles, triples, and quads we decide to have.
