NEW INNOVATION PROGRAM LAUNCHES FOR HARVARD!

September 8, 2020

We’re thrilled to introduce a new initiative for undergraduates that makes a knowledge of the liberal arts actionable at a crucial historic moment. The Lemann Program on Creativity and Entrepreneurship, which is led by Richard L. Menschel Faculty Director of the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning and Harvard professor Robert Lue and generously funded by Brazilian innovator Jorge Paulo Lemann '61, has launched to empower students to solve global challenges.

Do you have an idea that could positively transform society? This innovative program can spark and cultivate ideas generated by your liberal arts study to produce real-world ventures. We celebrate the cross-pollination of creativity among students, faculty, subject experts, and practitioners and nurture innovation. Our inaugural focus is on building a “better normal” by tackling the pandemic, racial injustice, and climate change.

We welcome students in any year or concentration to apply now to the LPCE Accelerator for access to the seed funding, mentor network, and a vibrant community that will take your thinking and venture to the next level. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to join StudioLab courses this spring to further deepen your entrepreneurial and creative mindset and take center stage as a change agent.
