The StudioLabs

The Entrepreneurship StudioLabs are the place where our students turn ideas gleaned from their education into ventures that tackle societal issues. We are a haven for the cross-pollination of thinking and creativity between students, faculty, subject experts, and industry practitioners. These StudioLabs are designed to cultivate student ideas from their initial generation to launching them in the form of entrepreneurial ventures. You know that gap between the academy and the workplace? We bridge it. We apply the intellectual horsepower of Harvard students to real-world problems. Expect transformative results.
