Meet the 2022 Summer Venture Program Teams

Babson’s signature Summer Venture Program (SVP) returns this year with 13 teams of graduate and undergraduate students that span industries from finance to web/mobile, and work in international ecosystems as diverse from each other as Africa, South Korea, Bangladesh, and India.

SVP is a 10-week intensive experience that builds entrepreneurial leadership skills and accelerates the development of student ventures. The teams work and collaborate in downtown office space at Babson Boston. One of the hallmarks of SVP is the Hot Seat, in which teams practice pitching their ventures and receive valuable, real-time feedback.

The program culminates with the Summer Venture Program Showcase on July 21 at Babson Boston, where the teams present their ventures to the Babson and local startup communities.


Register today to attend the 2022 Babson Summer Venture Program Showcase.


Because of the pandemic, the Summer Catalyst Program offered a virtual iteration of SVP the past two years.

The 2022 SVP cohort includes three 2022 B.E.T.A. Challenge finalists, including one grand-prize winner, an exchange student from Wellesley College, a team from F.W. Olin College of Engineering, Social Innovation Inventureship, a Presidential Scholarship recipient, many members of Babson’s graduating Class of 2022, and more.
