7th Annual Babson Food Day

Because food is everybody’s business

Wednesday, October 18, 2017
Babson College

Babson Food Day showcases the methodology of Entrepreneurial Thought & Action® as both a tool and a mindset to positively influence how eaters think about, select, and consume food, and how entrepreneurs learn, connect dots and build on their visions. 

Co-hosted by our extraordinary Babson Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) Andrew Zimmern, Babson Food Day fuels the energy, creativity, and generosity of eaters and entrepreneurs working together for the food future.

It is free to attend, no registration required, and open to the public.
