Summer Venture Program

A 10-week intensive experience designed to accelerate the development of student entrepreneurial ventures.

The Summer Venture Program supports the most promising graduate and undergraduate entrepreneurs from Babson, Olin College of Engineering, and Wellesley College. Up to 15 teams are chosen to participate in the program each summer. Teams receive housing, work space, advisors, a speaker series, and other resources to help them and their businesses develop throughout the 10 weeks.

The Venture Showcase, formerly known as Demo Day, is a culmination of the students’ hard work and where they showcase their accomplishments to professional investors and the local community.
