Phil Haus

CO-FOUNDER & MANAGING PARTNER
Phil is Co-Founder & Managing Partner @ LayJax Ventures (layjaxventures.com), and a member of CBRE’s West LA team, specializing in Transaction Services & Global Advisory for Tech, Consumer & VC clients on a local & global basis.  He brings unique perspective to brokerage—merging first-hand knowledge of what’s most important to founders and executive teams [at all growth-stages] with a passion for the commercial real estate business. At the center of his advisory approach is a drive and acumen to help his portfolio companies and clients make the best real estate decisions by enhancing value, managing risk and reducing costs.

Haus began his entrepreneurial career as co-founder of the social networking app ‘Pheed' alongside tech investor and businessman O.D. Kobo. Leading the nascent app's growth, Phil opened the 'Pheed House' on Mulholland Drive, a content creation hub for artists and tastemakers. Pheed became the #1 downloaded app in the Apple and Google Play App Stores (ahead of Facebook and Twitter), and was acquired after just 18 months of operation by Mobli Media, Inc. Haus was later appointed Head of U.S. Operations at Mobli and elaborated on the 'Pheed House’ model—opening ‘The Beach House’ (#moblibeachhouse) on the Venice Boardwalk—a content creation hub for a wide array of creative digital media/music production/live events. He also co-founded the viral 'Yo!' App, which was one of the most talked about apps in Silicon Valley when it launched, supported by silicon valley titan Marc Andreessen and economist Joachim Fels of Morgan Stanley.
