6th Annual Babson Food Day
Because food is everybody’s business
October 25–26, 2016
At Babson Food Day, we showcase 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 as always by our extraordinary Entrepreneurs in Residence Andrew Zimmern and Gail Simmons, Babson Food Day fuels the energy, creativity, and generosity of both eaters and entrepreneurs working together for a brighter food future.
All sessions hosted by Food Sol and Entrepreneurs in Residence Andrew Zimmern and Gail Simmons
Babson Food Day is free to attend (save $10 cash for lunch for non-Babson guests), no registration required, come-when-you-can, leave-when-you-need-to.
