‘Startup Studio’ Puts Graduates On The Path To Entrepreneurship
Harvard Business School has launched a studio in New York City to help HBS alumni develop new ventures
Harvard Business School opened its first off-campus facility for its aspiring entrepreneurial graduates in New York City. This startup studio is an extension of HBS’s vision to actively support alumni entrepreneurs by providing space, networking opportunities and guidance. The studio’s director is Avani Patel, who is also the founder of TrendSeeder, a fashion-focused accelerator program.
“Harvard Business School has proved itself to be the leader in the entrepreneurial space,” Patel said in a statement. “I am delighted to be able to share my knowledge and experience with HBS alumni who are eager to make a difference in the world by creating and developing new products and services.”
The first teams represent a variety of industries ranging from healthcare to consumer products. Teams can gain access to this curated community through an application process. HBS looks forward to expanding into a larger space next year and supporting a greater volume of startups.
