What we do
We're making Harvard an even better place for entrepreneurs.
Harvard College Ventures is the undergraduate entrepreneurship club at Harvard University. We lead cross-campus efforts to connect passionate individuals with each other and provide them with the resources to launch and improve their startups.
Founded in 2011, we facilitate a wide array of activities on campus, including founder and VC partner coffee chats, skill workshops, panel discussions with experts, pitch competitions, and social events to bring together like-minded individuals.
We're just students with big ideas and the passion to make them happen.

Make your idea a reality. VentureWorks is designed to help keep you on track and launch your startup. Our program concludes with a Demo Day where we invite top members of the startup ecosystem.
We run some of the most exciting events around.
A two-day conference to learn about entrepreneurship, business, and venture capital through a series of speaker events, workshops, and mixers.
A week-long incubator we host at the i-Lab to develop and grow Harvard startups. In addition to providing space and food, we set up workshops, office hours, as well as public Demo Day to take these startups to the next level.
Workshops & Coffee Chats
Throughout the year, we bring in a variety of industry leaders and a small room of students to teach skills or chat informally about startups and venture capital.
In collaboration with companies, we host competitions to identify and support startups on campus which are on the cutting edge of innovation.
We bring in industry leaders to talk in depth about a wide variety of industries and issues. In the past, we've done panels on ecommerce, ed-tech, bio-tech, political innovation, and women in entrepreneurship.
We host informal meetups between student groups across Harvard's campus to faciliate connections between like-minded and passionate individuals from all different backgrounds.
Our unique program brings together students and Boston-area growth startups to provide hands-on experience.
We believe that the best way to develop startup skills is by getting your hands dirty and working side-by-side with founders.
Nothing beats getting to know people in person. That's why each company we work with is from the Boston-area so that students can work intimately with startups.
We work hard with startups to define meaningful project scopes that add value to their companies, enabling students to see the challenges real startups face each day.
