15 Inspiring Stories for Women’s Entrepreneurship Day

Today we’re officially celebrating Women’s Entrepreneurship Day. But women entrepreneurs are celebrated every day at Babson.

Launched in 2013, Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) “works globally to empower women and girls to become active participants in the economy by igniting a network of women leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs to initiate startups, drive economic expansion, and advance communities around the world.”

The WED call to action echoes Babson’s emphasis on advancing women-led entrepreneurship, a critical component of the College’s strategy as it moves into its second century. We’re focused on increasing women entrepreneurs’ capacity to start and scale new ventures so that economies reach their full potential and more women and children can be lifted out of poverty.

One way Babson is preparing women to lead the world: The Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership (CWEL), which empowers women leaders through educational programs, events, and research while also promoting gender equity as a growth strategy that allows all individuals and organizations around the world to embrace their strengths and reach their full potential. CWEL is home to Women Innovating Now (WIN) Lab®, a five-month program designed specifically for women entrepreneurs that accelerates their entrepreneurial paths.

To celebrate WED, here are some recent stories from CWEL, the WIN Lab®, and our community.
