    Launched in November 2011, the Harvard Innovation Lab (i-lab) serves as a resource for students from across Harvard interested in entrepreneurship and innovation. The programming offered by the i-lab is designed to help students grow their ventures at any stage of development and covers a wide range of disciplines. The i-lab fosters collaboration among Harvard students, faculty, entrepreneurs, and members of the Allston and Greater Boston communities. Community members are invited to attend many of the events hosted at the i-lab, to stop at the InnoBreak Cafe (offering coffee and snacks), and utilize the Center's community lobby open workspace and WiFi. For Harvard student led teams whose ventures have progressed to a more advanced stage, the i-lab offers a Venture Incubation Program (VIP) during the Spring, Summer, and Fall of each calendar year. The Harvard i-lab has opened a 'OneHarvard' inspired model for co-working space adjacent to the i-lab for high potential Harvard alumni startup ventures, called the Launch Lab.
