Terner Labs scales critical housing innovations at the intersection of equity, affordability, and sustainability.

Whether supporting ventures from start to scale, launching tools for policy decision-making, or modernizing construction methods, our work aims to spur innovation to fundamentally and equitably improve the housing market.

As a sister organization of the Terner Center for Housing Innovation at UC Berkeley, we draw on rigorous research and policy expertise to select promising innovators and guide them toward the highest impact. In return, the solutions we field serve to inform better future research and policies.
