Introducing the Fall 2017 Harvard Innovation Labs Technology and B2B/Enterprise Ventures
This fall, the Harvard Innovation Labs is home to 33 technology and B2B/Enterprise ventures. These teams are laser-focused on improving how businesses operate across a wide variety of industries.
“Every industry today is ripe for disruption, and it’s inspiring to see just how many industries Harvard Innovation Labs ventures are improving through technology,” says Harvard Innovation Labs Associate Director of Technology Howard Kaplan.
“Evisort is creating an Artificial Intelligence solution to help lawyers organize, manage, and gain insight from their legal documents. PayDown is tackling the bloated student loan crisis through the development of intuitive and intelligent applications for students. And AirFox, the first venture-backed company in Boston to launch a successful Initial Coin Offering, is unlocking mobile access in the developing world.”
These technology and B2B/enterprise startups account for 23% of all ventures within the Harvard Innovation Labs ecosystem. The startup founders represent seven of the twelve Harvard schools, including the College, Business School, Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, School of Engineering and Applied Science, Law School, Kennedy School and Extension School. This variety of backgrounds brings life to the One Harvard vision of inter-school collaboration, and exemplifies our belief that diversity in experience is a necessary ingredient for innovation.
Harvard Innovation Labs is a dynamic ecosystem that unleashes the innovative power of the Harvard community and helps people take their ideas further, faster. Student-based ventures work and receive support in the Harvard i-lab, while alumni ventures are headquartered in the Launch Lab, a collaborative co-working space and resource-supported community for high-potential early-stage startups. Our newest space, the Pagliuca Harvard Life Lab, houses high-potential early-stage life sciences startups.
