New companies are taking shape all the time. Take an early look at our emerging Startup Opportunities and join us in building ventures that could change the world.

Added value

Harvard faculty are preeminent scholars and prolific inventors. In OTD, we also understand that some academic innovations need a boost to succeed commercially.

OTD’s pioneering technology accelerator programs—the Blavatnik Biomedical Accelerator and the Physical Sciences & Engineering Accelerator—help bridge the development gap, providing focused funding and resources to validate and de-risk promising technologies for successful partnering.

Deep connections

What ultimately makes it all work? Passionate people.

Our wide network of venture capitalists and entrepreneurs—many of whom are Harvard alumni—give generously of their time and expertise, leading and investing in new startup companies, engaging with labs as Entrepreneurs in Residence or Experts in Residence, serving on our accelerator advisory committees, speaking at OTD events, and making valuable connections throughout Cambridge and Boston.
