East Meets West at China Forum
China has a thriving economy but needs entrepreneurial leaders to sustain its competitive edge. And Babson is known throughout the world as an expert in teaching entrepreneurship.
In April, the two parties came together in China for “The Journey West: Babson Global Forum.” It was a match made in entrepreneurial heaven.
The two-day event in Shanghai attracted Chinese leaders from all sectors, global entrepreneurs, and the Chinese media. The nearly 250 attendees imagined a bright future for China powered by entrepreneurship, and they saw how strong ties with Babson could make that vision a reality.
Thanks to the following generous sponsors for bringing China and Babson together for this important first step in what will become a prosperous partnership.
