The Harvard Innovation Labs is a unique collaborative and educational ecosystem designed to foster innovation and entrepreneurship across the local and global Harvard community and as a central hub of the burgeoning Allston Science and Enterprise District. The Labs consist of a range of programs and two physical spaces that are adjacent to the Harvard Business School campus. Each year, we welcome thousands of students and hundreds of student- and alumni-led ventures focused on ideas that have the potential to make the world work a whole lot better. And boy could the world use that. The core programs are below:
The i-lab is a One Harvard experiential learning collaborative open to any full-time, degree-seeking Harvard student from any Harvard school seeking to explore innovation and/or entrepreneurship at any stage. All students can tap into a range of i-lab resources from staff advising and workshops to co-working space and the chance to be accepted into the Venture Program (VP), a 12-week integrated offering each semester that helps student startups realize meaningful progress while learning what it takes to lead, to manage and to respond to the infinite challenges that starting a startup presents. We also run an annual student-led competition called the President’s Innovation Challenge which awards $510,000 in prize money. And as much as we explain that it’s not about the money, well, it does help.
Launch Lab X
Launch Lab X is a groundbreaking startup accelerator for Harvard alumni-led ventures from around the world. The exclusive nine-month residential program is designed to support ventures with truly disruptive ideas that are committed to building viable businesses. Launch Lab X teams are housed within the i-lab and they’re really happy about it.
