Rank #1: Harvard Innovation Labs Stories: Ben Pleat - Doorbell

Podcast cover
Read more
With his company Doorbell, Pleat is trying to build more connected communities for people who live in apartments and other similar complexes. Currently, Doorbell is testing its product in Downtown Worcester’s Grid District, trying to bring the up-and-coming urban area together through shared experiences rather than other means.

It's quite a noble mission to focus on "in-real-life" community building at a time when other entrepreneurs are focused on growing digital user communities.

This is a Harvard Innovation Labs Story.

Three brothers from Costa Rica — Serge, Rolando, and Javier Masis — are building an activity discovery app that is a bit more serendipitous than most other products on the market.

Finalists for this year's Harvard President's Innovation Challenge, Serge and Javier sat down with us so that we could find out more about building their company and working together as a family. If you want to see the company (and the 11 other finalists) pitch its product as part of next week's Harvard President's Innovation Challenge Award Ceremony, you still get tickets at www.i-lab.harvard.edu.

Rank #5: Harvard Innovation Labs Stories: Chase Davis - The Wolfe

Podcast cover
Read more
Dino Rodriguez, Chase Davis and Christian Ondaatje thought they could build a way to get around some of the gaming and graphics deficiencies of Mac computers. As undergrads at Harvard, they built a device called The Wolfe, an external GPU that speeds up graphical applications such as those that use VR.

The company definitely serves a need and is rushing to get its product to market with a little help from Intel.

For our latest podcast, I sat down with Chase Davis to talk about the companies growth and some of the challenges they've faced.
