Who we are                                                      

We are an ecosystem that exists to support Harvard students and select alumni in their quest to explore the world of game-changing innovation and entrepreneurship. Since our founding in 2011, we’ve helped 4,700+ founders — from all 13 Harvard schools — to create global, lasting change. Explore the last 10 years of innovation.

Whether you’re here to solve a problem by creating a business, or simply interested in learning about innovation more broadly, we’ll help you get there further, faster. And you can help us shape our next decade of innovation.

What we offer

We unleash the innovative power of individuals through a network of highly-curated advisors and mentors, peer collaboration and interaction, and comprehensive resource and programming support.

What we believe

We believe that while knowledge is the engine of innovation, connection and collaboration are the fuel. We believe that when you bring together the right mix of people, with shared intentions and similar values, remarkable things happen. We believe in providing all the necessary supports for innovation, including psychological safety, transparency, empathy, compassion, connection and the opportunity for creative collision. We believe in unlocking unrealized value that can have a deep impact on markets, on the world, and on the individuals who walk through these doors.

Who we serve

We serve all matriculated, degree-seeking Harvard students, eligible alumni- or faculty-led ventures with an interest in innovation and entrepreneurship.
