Medicine, business, politics....You never know where the spark of innovation may originate at Harvard.
The Harvard Innovation Lab officially opened to the public Nov. 18. The ribbon cutters included President Drew Faust and Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino.
Harvard Business School has long known that many of its graduates found companies. But in the wake of Wall Street’s recent meltdown — and at a time when starting a new venture has become far easier — campus culture is embracing entrepreneurship in a big way.
Gordon S. Jones has been named the inaugural director of the Harvard Innovation Lab, a new and innovative initiative set to launch in late 2011 that will foster team-based and entrepreneurial activities, and provide a forum, both physically and virtually, for interactions among students, faculty, alumni, and the surrounding community.
