Launch House launches VC arm House Capital

Launch House has launched House Capital, the entrepreneur membership community’s dedicated venture capital arm and a $10 million debut VC fund which will focuses on backing companies in the Launch House community as well as other high-growth, early stage startups.

Founded by Michael Houck, Brett Goldstein, and Jacob Peters, House Capital aims to build off of the company’s existing relationships with founders early in their journey. Already, House Capital has co-invested alongside top-tier lead investors such as a16z, Sequoia, Paradigm, and Y Combinator. Founders of startups that House Capital invests in will get lifetime membership to the Launch House community, and full access to community amenities including fundraising support, digital cohort-based cohorts, and exclusive in-person residencies and retreats around the world.

Since inception in January 2022, the firm has invested in a number of companies at the Pre-Seed and Seed stages including Coinbooks, Ghost Financial, Anja Health and more. In just a few months, many House Capital portfolio companies have gone on to raise additional rounds of funding at higher valuations, proving the value of the Launch House and House Capital networks as a driver of attractive deal flow.

House Capital’s Limited Partnership base includes a wide variety of individuals across the tech and entertainment ecosystem. LPs include the co-founders of Dropbox, YouTube, and Riot Games, as well as Michael Ovitz, Peter Hollens, Serena Williams, and C-level operators from Polygon Studios. The firm also counts GPs from other funds among its LPs including Andrew Chen and Sriram Krishnan from a16z, Rick Yang from NEA, and James Currier from NFX. Creators including Peter Hollens and Bored Elon Musk round out the group.
