Five Hundred and fifty attendees, 24 speakers, 1,000 livestreaming audience, 6 NFTE “futurepreneurs”; today Babson College hosts its 12th annual Entrepreneurship Forum. Since launching in 2002, the Forum has brought together visionaries, innovators, thought leaders and entrepreneurs to consider opportunities that will transform the world. The forum is a glimpse into the future through the eyes of the very people who are shaping it.
This year’s World Series of Innovation is the biggest and most competitive World Series we’ve ever held. Students from around the world had the opportunity to submit their innovation to 11 challenges, ranging from beverage marketing plans to new technologies for education, in the hopes of winning the grand prize.
Students from nine nations including Algeria, Haiti, Austria, Chile and Thailand – more than 700 entries overall – shared their innovations this year and could win up to $10,000 in cash and prizes in the challenges.
