Babson College, Babson Park, Massachusetts, U.S.A.
How do you advance women’s entrepreneurship? Five Babson College women have spent their careers studying women entrepreneurs, and they’re sharing that knowledge in order to create policies and strategies to help more women succeed in business in countries around the world.
Called the Women Innovating Now Lab, or WIN, the graduate and undergraduate women are being fast tracked through the startup development process this year. They’ll create prototypes, field teams and develop marketing and funding strategies in order to launch by the school year’s end.
This, along with many other report findings and solutions were the key topics of an online panel discussion called Advancing Women’s Entrepreneurship: Why Gender Parity Is Key to Economic Growth – October 17th.
The round-table discussion included the following professors from Babson College:
Dr. Donna J. Kelley, GEM 2012 Women’s Report Author and Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship, Babson College
Dr. Candida G. Brush, GEM 2012 Women’s Report Author and Professor of Entrepreneurship and Chair of the Entrepreneurship Division at Babson College
Dr. Patricia G. Greene, GEM 2012 Women’s Report Author and Paul T. Babson Chair in Entrepreneurial Studies at Babson College
