Workflow + Community

for startup programs

Why we're doing this

We believe true access to things like people, jobs, resources, opportunities, and education is a right that far too few people have in this world. We also recognize that there are millions of existing organizations that feel the same way and are seeking to increase their impact through the opportunities and resources they make available to their members. 

That's why Harness exists to bring true access to the people who need it, and unrivaled tools and data to the organization that exist to support them. Together we can make the world a better, more innovative, and equitable place.

" I have gone deep exploring what encourages thriving startup communities around the world. Fundamentally, what makes or breaks any community is the way the members come together to interact. The Harness platform is tailor-made to enable the right types of interactions between community members in ways that have so far been absent in other products. With continued improvements and execution, this platform could fundamentally change the performance of startup communities everywhere. "
