Jodi Goldstein – Inside Harvard’s Innovation Lab

Since its inception, Jodi Goldstein has been the managing director of the Harvard Innovation Lab, a unique program that democratizes access to creative entrepreneurial resources and thinking across all twelve Harvard Schools. A Harvard graduate herself, she spent most of her career before the iLab on the management teams of several venture-backed startups including iMarket (sold to D&B), Planetall (sold to Amazon for over $100M), Send.com, Hoteluxury.com, and Mobicious. She co-founded Drync — a mobile app that allows consumers to find, track, share and purchase wines. She brings her expertise and passion to Innovation Crush, to discuss inner workings of the iLab; its past, present and future; developing soft skills for students, and partnerships with individuals and organizations within the innovation ecosystem.
