Babson, Olin and Wellesley college students will experience StartUP Scramble, a 48-hour intensive crash-course in everything student startup. The StartUP Scramble is an effort led by the Three-College Collaboration, a joint effort among Babson, Olin, and Wellesley Colleges that aims to expand educational opportunities for students, develop interdisciplinary approaches to teaching and problem solving, facilitate faculty research and teaching projects across campuses, and share best practices and collaborating in administrative functions.

The goal behind the three-college collaboration is to provide students with the creative and collaborative skills, knowledge, and ways of thinking needed to function successfully today and into the future. Hosted by Babson College Entrepreneurship Club (BEC), the event will take place September 14th- 16th at Babson’s campus.

CEO and young Entrepreneur, Stephan Douglass, started the Startup Scramble in the hopes to mobilize, engage, and empower young people through providing them with the resources to solve real-life business and social problems—all in one weekend. During the event, participating students will experience working with cross-campus teams, pushing themselves on existing expertise as well as expand their current networks. Scrambling to come up with feasible ideas and start-ups, these students are coached by experienced professionals and given a performance report at the end of the weekend. To add a unique challenge, the program requires students to remain in the building for 48-hours to successfully complete the event.
