About

Who we are                                                      

We are a three-lab ecosystem that exists to support Harvard students and select alumni in their quest to explore the world of innovation and entrepreneurship.

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.

What we offer

We are a dynamic incubator ecosystem that unleashes 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 physical 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 any full-time degree-seeking Harvard student, eligible alumni- or faculty-led ventures with an interest in innovation and entrepreneurship.
