Coaches during work periods

Every year at Inc, we have a bevy of high level entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and industry professionals as coaches and speakers throughout the week, and judges at our final pitch night. With Inc on the web, not only is this still a hallmark of Inc, but our reach has been expanded globally with alums coming back from all over the world.


Past coaches include members of Forbes' 30 under 30 list, venture capitalists from Lowercase Capital, Emergence Capital, noname Ventures, and Upfront Ventures, and many, many more founders from the Harvard-Westlake alumni network. At HW Inc 2020, these heavy-hitting entrepreneurs will be just a click away, excited and ready to help student teams develop their projects.

problem Solving! Pitch night!

Saturday, June 13


*subject to change

Students will work the entire week with a team to develop a problem and a solution to a final pitch in a Shark Tank style pitch night for a panel of high-level judges. Our curriculum, adapted for the web, will train students to identify, narrow, and clarify problems, interview those around them, and reach a final concrete solution.


Now more than ever, as the world shifts in unpredictable and unprecedented ways, the skills you or your child will learn at Inc 2020 are extraordinarily important.

The week of empowerment, pressure, and fun will come to a close with our final pitch night, tentatively at 7:30 pm on Saturday, June 13


Specifics will be released as we get final confirmations.
