Babson Fellows Program for Entrepreneurship Researchers

The Babson Fellows Program for Entrepreneurship Researchers represents an immersive online opportunity for all entrepreneurship scholars to gain a profound understanding of entrepreneurship research from leading, world-renowned entrepreneurship researchers, Professor Candida Brush and Professor William Gartner. 

This is much more than an academic writing workshop. Throughout these 3 weeks, you will be coached as a writer while receiving invaluable feedback from an esteemed panel of peers, editors, faculty members, and world-renowned experts culminating in a concrete, actionable six-month plan to have your written article ready for submission. Elevate your dissertation research, develop a secondary research stream, prepare conference proposals, and build a strong portfolio of academic publications while growing your network in the field. There will also be a 30-day follow-up to encourage continued momentum.
