9th Annual Babson Forum on Entrepreneurship & Innovation

MOVE YOUR IDEAS FORWARD

2010logo

 

Babson College is a breeding ground for entrepreneurs and the Babson Forum is the entrepreneurship highlight for students and entrepreneurs each year.

The Babson Forum on Entrepreneurship & Innovation is the largest student-run event on Babson’s campus and attracts 30+ speakers and over 600 attendees each year. The ninth annual event will be held on Saturday, November 13th, 2010 on the Babson Campus in Wellesley, Massachusetts and promises to be an exciting experience. We have already brought together another impressive list of speakers and are holding the Babson Next Big Idea Competition, which rewards the winning video pitch with $2,500 towards getting the business idea off the ground.

The Forum will bring together many Babson and Boston student entrepreneurs, as well as those individuals seeking inspiration to move their ideas forward. Additionally, entrepreneurs travel from all over the country to attend this event to learn about current trends in entrepreneurship and ways to better build a business from the ground up. On Saturday, the forum will begin with a keynote speaker followed by a series of panel discussions featuring cutting edge entrepreneurs and executives. The forum will conclude with a cocktail and networking reception, where attendees can meet the speakers and panelists, interact with a diverse group of entrepreneurs and startup companies, and learn what it takes to take it to the next level and become a top entrepreneur.
