2023 Harvard President’s Innovation Challenge Awards Ceremony

May 3rd, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Virtual In Person
President's Innovation Challenge: A Venture Award Ceremony presented by Harvard Innovation Labs, May 3 from 6-7 pm

We believe a diverse community of innovators — one that invites ideas from every angle — creates a robust ecosystem that propels everyone forward. That’s why we hope you’ll join us for the 2023 President’s Innovation Challenge Awards Ceremony on May 3 — our annual celebration of innovation, community, and entrepreneurship at Harvard.

We’ll hear live pitches from 25 finalist teams, including three Harvard Chan School teams, and reveal which of the freshest and most forward-thinking ventures will receive a share of $515,000 in funding, courtesy of the Bertarelli Foundation. Finalists have been selected from a diverse group of 158 PIC semi-finalist teams with representation from each of Harvard’s 13 schools and over 30 countries around the world.

Visit the PIC microsite to learn more about this year’s finalists.

Get excited for this year’s event by taking a look back at last year’s highlights.


In-person: Join us in person at Klarman Hall in Allston, then stick around after the show for an after-party on the lawn. Enjoy complimentary food, drinks, and a chance to meet and mingle with the finalists and our broader innovation community.
