Good Business Fridays
Join The Lewis Institute every Friday between 12:00 and
1:30pm in the Reynolds Global Lounge for open and casual discussions about
creating and maintaining a business in today’s world. Some discussions feature
guests with insights on a key topic, while others are open forums for students,
alums, staff, and faculty to support and advise each other about their business
concerns, ventures, and ideas. Come when
you can, there is no such thing as late!
“Good Business Fridays
gather people together who have an interest in combining social impact and
profit, and provide a forum to start cultivating their community.
conversations are a way to accelerate your journey around social value creation
and amplify your impact in the space.
There’s something very special and almost counter-intuitive about the
model. So much of our work at Babson is about purposeful, strategic action.
It’s easy to think: “who has time to sit around and just chat?” But the reality
is, a carefully built community of like-minded people is one of the most
important assets any entrepreneur can have.
I hope you’ll join us
this fall on Fridays at noon in the Reynolds Global Lounge as we explore what
it means to create social value through business; what it means to be a social innovator.
