Each Resident shares a home with 3 other builders and a co-working space with 20 other builders.
The Residents use their curiosity to decide what to learn and build. The Residency gives mentorship and structure to help Residents both learn and build effectively.
The Residency provides, housing, food, and cash in exchange for 8.5% equity in resident's startups that were created before or during the program.
Residents have the option to pay cash instead of equity. Talk to us if you prefer this option.
Berkeley, CA is home to one of the best entrepreneurial colleges in the US and is located right next to Silicon Valley. The talent density here makes it a perfect location for our founding cohort to thrive.
Residents are connected with student communities, professors, and founders at Berkeley and beyond.
A valuable college experience is figuring out how to live with new people.
We understand it takes time to find and build your dreams. All residents get at least 1 year of support.
As a thank you to our first residents for their trust and their future feedback, the founding cohort will collectively receive 2% equity in The Residency Inc.
Our goal is to one day have The Residency run entirely by recent graduates. We believe this will keep The Residency in line with modern learning research and the cultural "spirit of the times."
