Good Business Fridays

Join The Lewis Institute every Friday between Noon and 1:30pm in the Reynolds Global Lounge for open and casual discussions about creating and maintaining a business in today’s world.

Some discussions feature guests with insights on a key topic, while others are open forums for students, alums, staff, and faculty to support and advise each other about their business concerns, ventures, and ideas. Come when you can, there is no such thing as late!

Good Business Fridays

Good Business Fridays gather people together who have an interest in combining social impact and profit, and provide a forum to start cultivating their community.

These weekly conversations are a way to accelerate your journey around social value creation and amplify your impact in the space.  There’s something very special and almost counter-intuitive about the model. So much of our work at Babson is about purposeful, strategic action. It’s easy to think: “who has time to sit around and just chat?” But the reality is, a carefully built community of like-minded people is one of the most important assets any entrepreneur can have.

I hope you’ll join us on Fridays at noon in the Reynolds Global Lounge as we explore what it means to create social value through business; what it means to be a social innovator.
