  • The Program

    We want to leverage the best of the Harvard tech network to help the next generation of Harvard founders

    Timing

    The formal programming portion of this program will last for 6+ months; however, the goal of the program is to create something of lasting value where the relationships between founders, peer founders and mentors go on indefinitely.

    Founders Circle

    Meet on a regular basis with a cohort of high-potential founders, sharing best practices and insights about their current journey

    Mentorship

    You will have the opportunity to meet 1:1 with selected operators, investors and mentors as you proceed along the entrepreneurial journey

    Introductions

    The program will provide you with introductions to a curated list of potential mentors, investors, employees and peers from the Harvard tech ecosystem

    Peers

    By joining, you will be joining a select group of fellow founders that you will lean on throughout the process and will come to view as an invaluable peer group as you build your company

  • Apply Now

    Applications are currently open until 9/15/2018

     

    The program accepts emerging founders, with a focus on high-potential teams who have built a product, received traction and/or have raised their first round of investment.

     

    We are generally seeking candidates that are pre-Series A as we believe our community can provide the most impact as the company is being established.

  • FAQ

    What are the Harvard affiliation requirements?

    To qualify, at least one founder or C-level executive must be a Harvard degree holding alum or current student.

    Do we have to be based in NYC?

    We are primarily focused on NYC founders for our program; however, we are open to any and all talented founders and are happy to discuss how to make the program work best.

    Can we belong to other programs?

    We do not take equity or give money; we view our program as additive to any other program or opportunity that you may be exploring. We'll ask you to list any programs that you may already be a part of or further considering, and we'll take note of any issues that may arise.

    Do you give money? Ask for equity?

    We do not provide any money or ask for any equity.

    Do I have to join by myself? Can my co-founder join?

    Your founding team will be accepted into the program. We expect the Harvard affiliated team member to be the point person for the team.
