“The BWEL program at Babson College  provides a solid and much needed foundation for entrepreneurs to be successful.  Whether you’re a new entrepreneur or a matured business owner, this program not only meets the needs for its scholars, it also provides a safe space for women to meet, connect, and collaborate. As a mentor/coach of the AMAZING BWEL it has been a privilege and honor to assist with the nurturing and cultivation of the scholars of this program.  

A HUGE THANK YOU to Dr. Shakenna Williams and the entire F&E CWEL/BWEL team for allowing me to be a part of such a dynamic program.”
