Entrepreneurship is core to humanity.
We each carry within us vast potential to create new solutions, act on our values, and impact the world in positive and powerful ways.
Babson can unleash and amplify this potential to have impact.
With a developed entrepreneurial mindset, training, and inspiration, people everywhere can create lasting value for ourselves, our communities, and the world.
How we learn, teach, and operate must evolve.
We each must continually reinvent ourselves by acquiring new skills and knowledge. Colleges and universities also must reinvent themselves, engaging learners more deeply, co-creating relevant, experiential learning and real problem-solving opportunities.
Entrepreneurship is the most powerful driver of positive change.
Entrepreneurship is the most powerful tool there is to confront and overcome today’s challenges and find opportunity in change.
We are stronger together.
We can achieve more when we move powerfully together, respecting and trusting each other, developing and strengthening networks, and connecting with diverse, multiple, even unlikely partners in order to accomplish shared goals.
We must break barriers to access and opportunity.
We can create value for everyone, everywhere. There can be no edge. Everyone should have access to opportunities, and to the tools for learning and untethered self-determination.
We can have impact everywhere.
We can educate and act across geography, across politics, across demographics, and across the lifespan.
There is no choice between societal and economic value.
We must have both. Each creates and strengthens the other. Finding, developing, and scaling opportunities that do both, simultaneously, is the ultimate challenge of our time.
