SUBSCRIBE BELOW TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW TO SUPPORT AND STAY UPDATED ON THE LATEST GOLD RUSH OFFERINGS AND GIVEAWAYS.

Gold Rush is an accelerator purpose-built to partner with and scale Asian-led businesses across the United States. We believe that by advancing these companies, we can transform society’s views about our competence, intelligence, authenticity, and charisma. 

 Founded in 2018, Gold Rush recognized that while several Asian founders have experienced success with digital products, a lack of recognition remains for Asians as business leaders. According to Harvard Business Review, Asians are the least likely of any demographic to be promoted to management. In areas like Silicon Valley, Asians make up nearly a third of the workforce but less than half of these are represented in executive ranks.

At every season’s Solstice or Equinox, Gold Rush invites a curated cohort of Founders to participate in our mentorship-driven model to achieve the following: 

ACCELERATION

Founders benefit from access to the rich Gold House network for venture capital, business development partnerships to aid in company growth, and marketing and editorial collaborations to reach new customers and build brand equity.

AMPLIFICATION

Founders and their exclusive products are featured in semiannual sales on our digital marketplace and widely promoted by major media, industry influencers, and celebrity endorsers. During this time, founders experience significant top-line growth.

COMMUNITY

Founders join a perpetual, cross-industry cohort of founders that meet regularly to share insights, resources, and build partnerships. They also join our Gold House membership base which provides once-in-a-lifetime experiences, perks, and more.

Alumni

 

We can wait for a seat at the table or we can build our own table.

Join us on this journey.
