Product development firm, bb7, returns to Harvard University as Visiting Experts for the Harvard i-lab Venture Incubation Program
Madison, WI – October 4, 2017
Comprehensive product development firm, bb7, announced today their return to Harvard University to participate as mentors in The Harvard Innovation Labs program. The company will serve as Visiting Experts counseling students in product development and design. bb7 participated in Harvard’s pilot Specialist program in the summer of 2017.
The Harvard Innovation Labs hosts office hours for Harvard students with entrepreneurs-in-residence (EiR), legal partners, funders-in-residence, i-lab staff experts, and other visiting practitioners. The EiR program allows an opportunity for Harvard students to receive counseling on their ideas, their ventures, and their business planning issues.
bb7 became involved in the program after working with a Venture Incubation Program team (independently of Harvard) in 2016. After successfully guiding students during the 2017 summer semester, bb7 staff members will travel to Harvard to hold office hours during the fall semester. bb7 will send director-level experts from multiple areas of the product development process, including Director of Industrial Design & User Research Nicholas Higbee and Director of Advanced Development Ben Paprocki.
“During the summer semester, bb7 assisted venture teams with various challenges, including resolving detailed design issues, business plan development, and go-to-market strategy planning. We look forward to contributing to the venture teams during the fall semester and help them do what we do best: accelerate products to market,” said Ben Paprocki, Director of Advanced Development at bb7.
