Babson Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Platform

Fostering scale-up ecosystems that stimulate measurable growth.

The Babson Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Platform (BEEP) stimulates and supports entrepreneurship by developing scale-up ecosystems in cities, regions, and countries around the world—particularly in midincome and advanced economies—where growth-oriented entrepreneurial businesses thrive.

Program Goals

Ultimately, the goal is stimulating economic growth, meaningful employment, development, and prosperity by creating measurably more entrepreneurship in a given locale within five years. The program accomplishes this by helping regional leaders build the programs, policies, and culture that allow the entrepreneurial spirit to thrive.

Program Partners

BEEP continues to launch ambitious local ecosystem projects by partnering with broad groups of local public and private leaders. This may include government entities, foundations, private enterprises, universities, and public-private partnerships.

Program Director

Babson Executive and Enterprise Education Professor of Entrepreneurship Daniel Isenberg directs BEEP. Isenberg is a renowned authority on entrepreneurship around the world, as well as a former Harvard and Columbia Business School professor, entrepreneur, and venture capitalist.
