The Babson Collaborative for Entrepreneurship Education

The Babson Collaborative for Entrepreneurship Education is a global institutional membership organization connecting universities around the world that are building and expanding their entrepreneurship ecosystems. The Babson Collaborative is a one-of-a-kind offering from The Babson Academy, the global provider of entrepreneurship education development for institutions and educators of all kinds. Membership provides access to pedagogical best practices, expertise, and thought leadership from Babson College, and a network of like-minded global peers from other member institutions. Collaborative members share the belief that institutions acting together achieve more toward their entrepreneurial mission and goals than each working alone. There's no better place to master the power of entrepreneurship education than through The Babson Collaborative.

Who Are The Collaborative Members?

Large and small institutions of higher education around the world

Institutions with entrepreneurship majors, minors, and/or cocurricular entrepreneurship offerings

Business schools, engineering schools, liberal arts schools, and community colleges

Collaborative membership includes access for as many educators as the institution wishes. Each member school designates one person as its institutional champion. The Collaborative champion is the individual who has a passion for entrepreneurship, understands and is accountable for successful development and implementation of their institution's mission in entrepreneurship education and is fluent in English. Collaborative institution champions will be able to secure funding for participation, encourage engagement among their faculty, share news and updates, and work closely with the Collaborative leadership team.

Annual Global Summit

The annual Global Summit brings together entrepreneurship educators from around the world to share best practices in pedagogy and advance thought leadership. The summit provides optimal value for attendees through professional development content, exposure to host school and local ecosystems, excursions, and time for members to network, conduct business with each other, and socialize. 

Global Student Challenge

In this annual competition, students from member institutions compete in a feasibility analysis of a new business concept that addresses one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The challenge is completed in two phases: a local institution-based competition resulting in one winning team, followed by a global competition among the winners from each member institution. The top two teams win a scholarship to attend the Babson Build program.
