Harvard Opens Startup Incubator: Harvard Innovation Lab

harvard innovation labJust last week on November 18th Harvard’s long awaited i-Lab opened it doors. The lab aims to further encourage entrepreneurship and innovation across the campus and all of Harvard’s schools.

With Harvard producing numerous successful companies and entrepreneurs (we all know Facebook) it will be interesting to see if this move only puts them further ahead of the game. We already mentioned earlier today how Harvard runs one of the largest collegiate business plan competitions awarding over $170,000 in prizes. The school also has numerous clubs, groups and classes dedicated to entrepreneurship as well as access to some of the most successful and sought after mentors.

This will allow for all of the student businesses, entrepreneurship events, speakers and mentors to work in one location. Bringing everyone together under one roof can only lead to more collaboration and more ideas being spawned by the great minds already there.

What other schools have on campus incubators? How have they changed the entrepreneurial environment on those campuses?
