Partnering with HSA
Let's face the facts. Harvard students have great ideas all the time, but what they don't have is the extra time to bring them to fruition. We all know someone who's been there: Sitting on a great idea for a new campus service, but with no idea how to (or at least, no free time to) make that idea a reality. HSA can help.
With more than 50 years of experience transforming student ideas into full-fledged businesses, quite frankly, it's what we do best. Whether you're just looking for feedback or ready to work on a whole new agency, we're always happy to talk. If there's any way that we can support your student business, just let us know - and if you think it might be a good fit at HSA, we'd love to hear more. Give us a shout and we'll find out how HSA's financial resources, hiring power, and alumni connections can help take your business to the next level.
If you'd like to chat or meet in person, just fill out the form to the right and we'll get back to you ASAP!

Harvard College Innovation Challenge
The Harvard College Innovation Challenge is known on campus as i3 for invent-imagine-impact. Co-founded by Harvard Student Agencies and TECH (Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard), i3 is where student startups get their start. Students compete for project grants and incubator space to help them realize their innovative visions.
i3 is a year-long program that cultivates, coaches and showcases Harvard’s rapidly growing group of student entrepreneurs. Every year we receive innovative applications from students in all 12 houses, 4 class years, and almost every concentration. Now in its 7th year, i3 has provided over $650,000 worth of grants, incubator space and professional services to students pursuing commercial and social startups on campus, online and internationally.
HSA offers its own prize in the competition, primarily targeting businesses that provide a valuable service for students on Harvard's campus. Past winners of the HSA Prize include a wide range of startups (including Her Campus in 2009); view the entire list here.
