Gold House is the premier nonprofit collective of Asian founders, creative voices, and leaders dedicated to unifying the world’s largest populace–Asians and Pacific Islanders–to enable more authentic multicultural representation and societal equity.
In contrast to every major successful diaspora, Asians lack a cohesive culture of mutual support. Our fifty ethnicities, hundreds of dialects, and distributed density across the globe have only extended this fracture. And yet, we’ve witnessed the positive cultural impact when communities rally to support their own: from the invention of new creative institutions like Hip Hop and R&B or leading an entire industry in commerce. To accelerate our community’s societal impact and cultural legacy, we’ve built a collective of the most influential pan-Asian founders, creative voices, and leaders dedicated to erecting infrastructural opportunities that improve life for ourselves, future generations, and society, at large.
Our approach is two-fold: first, we forge meaningful bonds across professional, familial, and community life. Second, we leverage those relationships to elevate the Asian diaspora’s authentic societal representation and economic success. Critically, we ensure that our solutions benefit all of society rather than one particular group.
Oceans are bridges—and a rising tide lifts all ships.
Outward strength begins on the inside. Through a once-in-a-lifetime Membership program, intimate Salons, and high-value networking, we forge stronger mutual support among Asians. But if we only build for ourselves, we build ourselves an island: through partnerships with other multicultural communities in the All of Us Movement as well as through campaigns for voter registration, social justice, and more, we erect even broader opportunities for all.
We can’t be what we can’t see.
We inspire and transform the public opinion of Asians through ongoing creative projects that uncover and evolve Asian identity with Gold Open (a movement that collaborates with every major Hollywood film studio and independent film distributor to ensure developmental and distribution success); canonical portrayals that anchor our heritage through Gold Records; and annual distillations of our community’s most impactful leaders for societal celebration through the A100 List.
We can wait for others to give us a seat at the table or build our own table.
Societal change is often sustained economically. We empower Asians to succeed in reaching C-Suites and Boardrooms by disrupting systemic barriers through a Founder Network of early-stage founders who choose their own leadership; capital injections through the largest Asian angel investor syndicate; and through Gold Rush, the premier business accelerator powered by cross-cultural leaders that supports the most promising Asian founders.
