Babson Connect: Worldwide 2020

Babson Connect: Worldwide 2020 Postponed

Babson College remains committed to protecting the well-being of our students, alumni, partners, friends, and employees, in the United States and abroad. There are many unknowns with regard to the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and the situation is evolving very quickly. Over the last few weeks, Babson’s Leadership Team has actively collaborated with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Massachusetts Department of Health, and the Governor of Massachusetts, who has urged local colleges to cancel upcoming organized international trips.

In accordance with these evolving protocols, we have decided to postpone Babson Connect: Worldwide 2020 in Panama City, and reschedule to March 2021. If you have questions, please contact the Events Management Office at or 781-239-5265. We look forward to bringing Babson to Panama City next year!


Taking place every year in a different city around the world, Babson Connect: Worldwide offers entrepreneurial thinkers and doers the opportunity to connect, exchange ideas, and be inspired.

Next year’s gathering lands in Panama City. Situated in a place of connection, where oceans meet and continents come together, Panama City is sometimes called the “crossroads of the world.” With its mix of history and modernity, of business and beauty, the cosmopolitan capital makes for an ideal setting for the sixth edition of Babson Connect: Worldwide.

Keynote speakers and panels will discuss emerging trends in family business, global investing, social enterprise, and more.

Babson Connect: Worldwide also will include networking opportunities, social events, and a gala to honor the latest inductees into Babson’s prestigious Academy of Distinguished Entrepreneurs®.
