Time: 6:00 PM/Tour Begins at 6:15 PM
Place: Harvard i-Lab
Opened in November of 2011, Harvard’s “i-Lab” is designed to foster team-based and entrepreneurial activities and to deepen interactions among students, faculty, entrepreneurs, and the Boston community. Intended to cut across the territorial and siloed academic interests that so often stifle innovation, the i-Lab brings together many cross-curricular interests including the College, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the Graduate School of Education, HBS, the schools of Medicine, Law and Dental Medicine, and the Kennedy School.
What distinguishes the lab’s approach from those of other institutions’ entrepreneurship centers? First, faculty members are involved from the outset—not just alumni and external practitioners. Second, the lab is explicitly experimental and “under no pressure to commercialize an idea”. Third is the lab’s mandate to extend into the local community.
Enjoy an informative evening to see how the great ideas from across Harvard University are coming to life. Attendance will be limited so sign up soon!
Thank you to Peter Connor, TGMP '04, for organizing this program.
