Young Alumnus Creates Scholarship
This year, Andrew Bachman ’06 entered the Babson record books as one of the youngest alumni to fund a $50,000 scholarship, which is named after him and his business partner, Lin Miao ’08.
Bachman is no stranger to the record books. In 2005, he teamed up with Miao to launch Tatto Media, an agency that delivers targeted ads via the Internet. Tatto Media has grown into a Top 20 online advertising company, according to comScore Inc. Bachman and his business partner also earned a spot in BusinessWeek’s Top 25 Best Young Entrepreneurs of 2007 and won Babson’s coveted Student Business of the Year Award in 2008.
Bachman says the people he met at Babson have been the key to his success, including professors Len Green and Elaine Allen and the students who lived in the Babson entrepreneurship dorm E-Tower. He hopes that this gift will enable future students to experience the power of the Babson community.
