"Today, the Harvard Innovation Labs announced that the university innovation center awarded $300,000 in Spark Grants to 100 ventures during the 2020-2021 academic year.
“Spark Grants fill a critical funding need for early-stage student entrepreneurs, providing much-needed capital for building prototypes, testing products, and reaching customers,” said Matt Segneri, Bruce and Bridgitt Evans Executive Director of the Harvard Innovation Labs. “Over the last academic year, the 100 ventures who received Spark Grant funding built an extraordinary array of products and services, from made-to-measure apparel for women to a technological ecosystem for blind individuals. Our hope is that all of the Spark Grant recipients are able to use this funding in a way that has a meaningful impact on their ventures, and the people their ventures serve.”
