Breakthrough Lab (B-Lab) is Brown University’s premier 8-week summer accelerator program for Brown and RISD students developing high-impact ventures. Our goals are two-fold: to educate world-class entrepreneurs, and to foster the development of new ventures that are creating high-impact and scalable solutions to serious problems. Learn more about the program and its impact on students in this short video.
Brown Venture Prize (BVP) supports teams who have identified a significant opportunity, and whose ventures have the potential to create “impact at scale.” We encourage ventures in any sector or industry, whether using a commercial, social, or blended business approach, to apply. The Brown Venture Prize is intended to help them accelerate and scale those solutions.
Winners will receive prize money, critical mentorship, and access to leaders in the Brown entrepreneurial community and beyond. Learn more about the program and its impact on students in this short video.
