The Blank School engages Babson community members and leads research to create entrepreneurial leaders.
Complete: Weissman Foundry
Weissman Foundry opened in Fall 2018
The Weissman Foundry is a new building centrally located between the hearts of Babson’s and Olin’s campuses on Map Hill Drive across from Trim Parking Lot. The approximately 9,800 square foot building has space available for student project workspaces, prototyping resources, experiential teaching spaces, social kitchen, and conference and group study space. The purpose of the building is to serve the needs of students pursuing entrepreneurial ventures where physical prototyping is central, promoting greater collaboration with the Olin College of Engineering, and Wellesley College; and complementing existing "innovation spaces" on campus available in the Olin Graduate School of Business and the Leonard A. Schlesinger First Year Innovation Center, particularly by providing a dedicated "messy" project workspace where students can work on projects at all hours.

Work is completing and ready for Fall classes.
The project is underway with site clearance complete, concrete foundation poured and walls beginning to rise.
