From the opportunity:

The President’s Innovation Challenge is a call to action, innovation and entrepreneurship. It’s a challenge to the entire Harvard community of students and postdocs to engage with pressing issues facing the world and to explore turning their ideas into impactful, real-world ventures.

The Challenge is also a competition and an opportunity to win funding for your venture. Approximately one hundred semi-finalist teams will be selected and automatically accepted into the 2019 Spring Venture Incubation Program. These teams gain full access to all i-lab resources (advisors, experts, etc.), where they can continue to grow their ventures. A panel of expert judges will then choose the finalists, who will go on to compete for their share of $410,000 in prize money.

Cash prizes are awarded in each of four tracks:

  1. Social Impact or Cultural Enterprise
  2. Health or Life Sciences
  3. Open (for ideas that transcend categories)
  4. Launch Lab X (selected teams in our 9-month alumni accelerator program)
