babson connector new online community launches
Babson College has launched the Babson Connector—a new interactive online community built to enhance its network by connecting, and reconnecting, its powerful global network present in 114 countries.
“When the Babson community works together—connecting across industries, generations, and geographic boundaries—the results can have incredible and far-reaching impact,” said Babson College President Kerry Healey. “Together, we can continue to amplify the strength of the Babson network, create great social and economic value everywhere, and have a positive impact on the world.”
One of the most anticipated features of the Babson Connector is the ability to share and promote Babson alumni and student ventures. Community members can seek feedback, funding, mentorship, and resources from Babson’sentrepreneurs of all kinds, all around the world.
The Babson Connector also allows users to:
- Search for Babson alumni and businesses;
- Recruit Babson talent;
- Participate in discussions on business trends and topics;
- Connect with regional affinity and alumni groups all over the world;
- Search for, post, or apply for jobs and internships;
- And stay up-to-date on Babson news and events in Wellesley, Boston, San Francisco, Miami, and beyond.
“As we travel around the world to spend time with our alumni and friends, it has become clear that what our alumni want is to be reconnected with their faculty and each other and to support current Babson students with their expertise and resources,” said Managing Director of Babson’s Alumni and Friends Network, Gerri Randlett. “This tool will allow our alumni, parents, and friends to do all of these things.”
