Babson College

Babson is a living/learning laboratory that delivers a rigorous learning experience both in and out of the classroom. Our academic excellence is based on a curriculum, pedagogy, and co-curricular experiences that are captured in the following concepts: *Entrepreneurial Thought and Action—the mindset and method that gives our graduates the ability to face an uncertain world by learning from entrepreneurs. Like the best entrepreneurs, our graduates reflect on who they are, the context in which they are situated, and act from values that recognize the need for consideration of social, economic, environmental responsibility, and sustainability. *Entrepreneurship of All Kinds—regardless of career choice (starting new businesses, leading social ventures, working as finance professionals, or leading public sector organizations), Babson equips its graduates with the mindset and method that enables them to capitalize on opportunities to create value for their organizations and for the world.

Population(s) Served

Entrepreneurship gives people a sense of ownership of ideas and belief that they can positively impact their community. It is the best way to create jobs in developing countries, and new jobs are the best way to benefit individuals, local economies, and greater national economic health. Babson founded the Babson-Rwanda Entrepreneurship Center to support entrepreneurship throughout Rwanda. We propose to launch the Babson-Rwanda Entrepreneurship Educator's Network (BREEN) to strengthen the infrastructure for teaching entrepreneurship in the country's secondary schools as is mandated by the government. Over two years, we will teach more than 500 entrepreneurship teachers the content, methodology and experiential practices that is Babson's trademark. This will increase the effectiveness of teachers, enabling tens of thousands of young people in Rwanda to graduate with the knowledge, skills and entrepreneurial mindset to start their own business or work in the private sector.

Population(s) Served

The Center for Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership (CWEL) at Babson College educates, inspires, and empowers women entrepreneurial leaders to reach their full potential to create economic and social value for themselves, their organizations, and society. The Center does this through innovative education programs, events, and by supporting and widely disseminating research about the unique skills and experiences of women entrepreneurial leaders. Additionally, CWEL supports and advances gender equality as a growth strategy for individuals and for organizations of all sizes, everywhere in the world. The Center is a learning laboratory focused at the intersection of gender and entrepreneurial leadership. CWELis dedicated to investigating, educating, and celebrating women entrepreneurial leaders of all kinds. We provide high impact educational programs, create powerful collaborations, and fund and disseminate action research that influences lives, enhances careers, and evolves organizations.
