Prof. Greene Talks Entrepreneurship — The Babson Way — At Entrepreneurship Eco-System Conference

This past spring Babson Entrepreneurship Professor Patricia G. Greene presented at the Entrepreneurship Eco-System Conference, co-sponsored by Babson’s Arthur M. Blank Center for Entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship researchers from schools in Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the U.S. gathered to examine cases in each of their universities, and create a new teaching model that would catapult entrepreneurship education throughout the campus.

Called the Entrepreneurship Eco-system, the new model supports the promotion of entrepreneurship by involving the community in a variety of entrepreneurship initiatives such as: the integration of entrepreneurship in core requirements; the collection of entrepreneurship offerings; student-led conferences; on-campus new venture development; alumni entrepreneurs as faculty and speakers; funded entrepreneurship research crossing disciplinary boundaries; and educational extensions of entrepreneurship education into such areas as family enterprising, technological entrepreneurship and corporate innovation — in short, a comprehensive program in entrepreneurship teaching, research and outreach woven into the fabric of the entire university.

Here Prof. Greene discusses the Babson approach to Entrepreneurship Thought and Action.
