First days of Harvard life
Almost a month after we moved to Cambridge, MA (USA) to start my appointment as Innovation Fellow at Harvard University, we can finally say we’ve gotten into the rhythm.
In a post in my Harvard Blog I listed some of the logistical steps we had to take in order to move and normalize our life in this side of the Atlantic.
After that, this first few weeks have been about getting familiarized with the environment (classes, supermarkets, transportation, schedules, etc). For that we took long walks around campus. Fortunately we live by the Charles river, next to the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, so it’s all within comfortable walking distance.
Of course we paid particular attention to libraries, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (both in Cambridge and Alston), Harvard Innovation Labs, classrooms, dining halls, ice cream parlors, etc.
Here are some photos.
We also attended the season’s opening (American) football game between Harvard and Merrimack at Harvard Stadium, which turns out to be the oldest collegiate stadium in the USA.
Of course, as I remain a Venture Partner at NLC, I also attended in Boston a couple of events related to that work: a Technology Transfer event (AUTUM) and an Early Stage Investment Event (RESI).
So we can finally say we’re settled, which means… time to travel again!
