Babson Alumni Supporting Entrepreneurs
(formerly Babson Alumni Resource Network, BARN)
Babson Alumni Supporting Entrepreneurs (BASE), formerly the Babson Alumni Resource Network, is a unique program that provides practical support for Babson Alumni Entrepreneurs by connecting them to other experienced alumni who act as business advisors, helping to clarify issues and explore options for start-up businesses and existing companies trying to move to their next level of success. BASE Teams work with Alumni Entrepreneurs as sounding boards and coaches, providing insights and perspectives, based on their own business experience and expertise.
