Announcing Summer Venture Program in San Francisco!


This summer, we’re excited to launch Babson’s signature accelerator here at our San Francisco campus located in SoMa, the center of the start-up scene in SF. Within blocks of the campus are headquarters of some of the biggest names in tech, as well as a host of co-working spaces, accelerators, and VC firms, making San Francisco an ideal spot for budding Babson entrepreneurs.

Throughout the 10 week intensive experience, Summer Venture Program (SVP) teams are given key resources to get their business from a minimum viable product to a launched business. Teams will receive work space, advisors, and an opportunity to build a tight-knit community with like-minded entrepreneurs. The program offers a hands-on, experiential learning process for teams to accelerate and scale their startup.

“San Francisco is a perfect way to expand the Summer Venture Program, as it provides our students with access to the wealth of resources in Silicon Valley and expands the powerful SVP network,” said Blank Center Executive Director, Debi Kleiman. “We are thrilled to partner with the SF Campus team to bring more Babson entrepreneurship programming to the Bay Area.”

SVP San Francisco will run simultaneously with SVP main campus, sharing the recruitment process, speakers, faculty, and extending the important network that forms during the summer months via technology. The program starts in mid-May and ends with a Venture Showcase in early August where entrepreneurs will present their business to angel investors, industry innovators, and the Babson community.
