Fashion Entrepreneurial Initiative
Courses and Co-Curricular Programs
We offer Entrepreneurship in Fashion courses in Wellesley and London and co-curricular programs via the John E. and Alice L. Butler Launch Pad and the Weissman Foundry that explore new business models. We collaborate with The Lewis Institute in fashion and create action agendas for fashion and the environment.
Student, Alumni, and Community Events
Events bring together leaders and innovators of the fashion industry including current undergraduate and graduate students from Babson, Olin, & Wellesley Colleges, executive education participants, alumni, and corporate leaders. We host four annual events: Fashion Table Discussion, Future of Fashion Panel, Fashion & Environment Focus, and Babson/Olin/Wellesley Fashion Challenge.
We build connections through our network to advance innovation in the fashion industry throughout the value chain and the ecosystem. Fashion Disruption 2030 is an action research program led by Professor Caroline Daniels that combines student, alumni, educational institution, and corporate efforts to provide thought leadership and collaboration on the Future of Fashion.
