Lecture: Networking, Fundraising, and Friendraising with Proven Results: The Win-Win Mindset by Jeff Bartel

Are you are looking to build stronger college or professional relationships, find a job or career opportunity, seek funding for a start-up venture or nonprofit, or hope to do better at building strong teams and communities? How can one best approach and take actions that develop trust, create value, and forge opportunities? For some, this comes easy; for most of us, it does not. Hear from an expert (and Harvard graduate and visiting lecturer) who will discuss strategies, methods, tactics, and tools that will help you understand your own mindset and build skills to authentically create relational, financial, and social goodwill.

Max Mirho from EntrepreNerd - No-code tools for building your startup

Max Mirho has taught entrepreneurship to students and professionals around the world by giving them the tools to experiment rapidly. He started creating and building tiny businesses publicly on the internet around 3 years ago through a live stream called EntrepreNerd, and through the recent boom in "no-code", he’s been able to tackle much larger startup ideas and help make tech entrepreneurship accessible to students from every background. In this session, you'll learn about what the no-code space is, and about some of the tools you can use to build technology products without learning an entire programming language. Not only that, but your development time for a finished prototype will drop from months to around a week at most. You'll learn about how to create anything on the web, from landing pages to full websites. You'll also be able to develop mobile apps, chrome extensions, and web apps - and publish them anywhere. Zoom link will be shared the day before the event.

The architecture of social space: Creating spaces of critique within the places we live

Matthew Mazzotta's community-specific public projects integrate new forms of civic participation and social engagement into the built environment and reveal how the spaces we travel through and spend our time living within have the potential to become distinct sites for intimate, radical, and meaningful exchanges. Matthew Mazzotta works at the intersection of art, activism, and urbanism, focusing on the power of the built environment to shape our relationships and experiences. His public projects have received international art and architecture awards such as “Architecture Project of the Year” by the Dezeen Awards at the Tate Modern in London and six of his projects have been recognized by the Americans for the Arts. Matthew’s work has been featured on CNN, BBC, NPR, The Huffington Post, Discovery Channel, and Science Magazine to name a few, and presented at the Cooper Hewitt-Smithsonian Design Museum in NYC.

From idea to impact: The new market for public health entrepreneurs

From our friends at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health!

Investors have traditionally given short shrift to public health, seeing it as a field for do-gooders, not a vehicle for profits. But that’s starting to change. More academic researchers and public health professionals are seeking to take their discoveries commercial, and more investors are willing to listen. In this panel, Harvard Public Health magazine brings together founders and investors to talk about the challenges — and rewards— of developing affordable goods and services aimed at improving health on a population scale. And if you have an idea you’d like to bring to market, check out HealthLab, a new accelerator for student ventures focused on improving public and planetary health. Co-founded by Harvard Chan School and Harvard College’s Lemann Program on Creativity and Entrepreneurship, HealthLab will welcome its first cohort of students from across the University this fall. Participants receive startup support, mentorship—and the chance to compete for a $100,000 prize.
