Since its inception, HCS has cultivated a community of passionate young technologists and builders, who are hungry to cultivate the next generation of tech. In light of COVID-19, we hope to encourage experimentation and tinkering during this unstructured time alongside giving back to the greater Harvard community.

That's why we've launched the Builders Incubation Program, a three month initiative from June to August providing a virtual community for remote collaboration on any form of project. We will provide funding through equity-free grants in the range of $100 to $5,000, mentorships from our product, engineering, design, and investor networks, workshops, socials, and more programming throughout the summer to encourage our community to keep building.

Regardless of the stage of your idea in the innovation process, we'll help guide you and introduce you to like-minded Harvard-affiliated builders to further fuel your zeal, so please don't hesitate to apply!

If you're looking for a team or idea to apply with, check out the HCS Summer Projects Initiative, a database of projects, ideas, and teams that are active this summer and looking for other team members. If interested, apply by 5/15 11:59 EST at The applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. For any questions or concerns, please contact us at or!
