If so , then join us at the Harvard i-lab September 11th from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. to learn about social innovation opportunities across the University, including:
- student groups,
- research centers,
- business plan competitions
- classes, and
- i-lab programming.
You’ll also have the opportunity to network with like-minded peers from across the University and build connections that will provide support and camaraderie on your path as a social innovator.
