About the course

An Entrepreneur Bootcamp to Launch and Grow Your Business

You have the idea and the determination to make it happen, and Babson has the new venture entrepreneurship expertise to take your business to the next level. During this entrepreneurship training program, faculty from the No. 1 school for entrepreneurship will help you gain the entrepreneurial mindset and relevant skills it takes to successfully launch and grow your business.

Choose the format that’s right for you: in-person or live online. If you thrive in bootcamp environments, register for the in-person experience. It’s an intense, five-day entrepreneurship workshop.

Both programs end with rocket pitches that are recorded, peer-reviewed, and scored.
