Babson Latin America Forum: Changemakers in Latin America 

The Babson Latin American Club is proud to present the 11th edition of its annual forum; this year’s theme is Changemakers in Latin America. We chose to center the event around the idea of Changemakers to be able to showcase a spectrum of actors who are working towards a better future.

This year we will have 15 amazing speakers who have traveled from all over Latin America to come to our campus and share their story. They will be showcasing an array of backgrounds: family business, social enterprises, non-profits, serial entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and corporate leaders, but they all have one thing in common, they are looking to create positive change not only in the region but in the world.

Speakers from family business background include Alejandro Poma, Vasco Masias, Rene Martinez, and Jose Teran.
