The Harvard Innovation Labs has published a summary of achievements from the university innovation center’s community in 2019. This year’s annual list features nearly 50 accomplishments from current and former Harvard Innovation Labs teams.

“At the start of 2010, the Harvard Innovation Labs was still just an idea — one that would not turn into a reality for nearly two more years,” said Jodi Goldstein, Bruce and Bridgitt Evans Executive Director of the Harvard Innovation Labs. “Since then, we’ve launched and scaled a university innovation center that has brought together tens of thousands of Harvard students, alumni, and faculty to explore ideas across industries and stages.”

She added, “In recent years, our growth has included opening the Pagliuca Harvard Life Lab, introducing the Launch Lab X accelerator program to support alumni entrepreneurs, engaging with more world-leading innovators and entrepreneurs to advise Harvard Innovation Labs’ teams, and creating multiple new funding opportunities through the Allston Venture Fund, the Social Impact Fellowship Fund, and early stage grants. Throughout, we’ve continued to scale the annual Harvard President’s Innovation Challenge, which will offer $510,000 in prize money from The Bertarelli Foundation to winners and finalists in 2020.”
