Announcements and Upcoming Events
Good Business Fridays!
This Friday, December 6th, is the last Good Business Friday of 2013. Join FME professor Phyllis Schlesinger and some socially innovative student entrepreneurs as we ask the question, "Is a good business a successful business?" Good Business Fridays run every Friday, Noon–1:30 p.m., and are weekly conversations around opportunities and challenges in creating and managing a business in today’s world. Some discussions feature a special guest with insights on a key topic. Others are open forums for students, alums and faculty to support and advise each other about their business concerns, business ventures and ideas. Bring your lunch with you and we’ll give you the dessert. Most importantly, there is no such thing as late, just show up when you can and leave when you want to. For questions and suggestions, please email Jennifer Kuhanga

Babson Food Days and Community Table
Babson Food Days was about surfacing bite-sized opportunities for action and learning around food—and celebrating the tremendous talent and desire for food-system innovation that lives right here at Babson and around the world. Babson has most certainly arrived on the food-entrepreneurship scene. Share your photos from the event on our Facebook page.
But Food Days was only the beginning. We hope that you will continue to come to our table, break bread and shape ideas with us, and look for your entrepreneurial paths into making a difference in food.
Food Sol Community Table: Wednesdays, Noon–1:30 p.m.
