Babson Built is a dive into the entrepreneurial mindset and journey, brought to life through the stories of Babson founders. From dorm room startup to Shark Tank to Series A, our interviews depict the highs, lows, and thrills of starting and scaling a venture. 

The Babson Built podcast is now live and can be listened to on both iOS devices (using the Podcast app) and Android devices (using Podcast Addict app), with upcoming episodes from some of the worlds coolest and most innovative founders.

What if you could get out of your routine and travel with entrepreneurial-minded people? Startup Island provides a supportive community for entrepreneurs to get away and engage with other like-minded people. One of the Co-Founders, Josh Gershon, found himself trying to decide if he should go to Costa Rica and travel or begin a career in graphic design. But he wanted to do both. He created Startup Island so entrepreneurs could grow and develop their businesses while also pursuing their ideal lifestyles.

In this episode the founders discuss how they teach entrepreneurship in the tropics.
