This year’s Forum features the Ideas Into Action Business Plan Competition at 2:30 p.m. The top three winning plans will receive a $20,000+ prize including cash, consulting, legal, and web services. Finalists will also present their six-minute Rocket Pitch. To register for the competition, go to: www.babsonforum.com. Deadline for submissions is October 5th.
The day-long event includes a number of expert panels on a variety of topics including: Sports and Media, Green Ventures, Women Entrepreneurs, and Entrepreneurship in the Food Industry.
Keynote speakers include: Helen Grenier, Co-Founder, iRobot; Stacy Madison, Founder, Stacy’s Pita Chips; Doug Otto, Co-Founder and CEO, Decker’s Outdoor Corp (Teva, Simple, and UGG Australia); Jeffrey Swartz, CEO, Timberland; and Alan Weber, Co-Founder, Fast Company.
The Forum concludes with a Networking Reception with speakers, panelists, venture capitalists, and private equity professionals. Participants will also learn how to take their “Big Idea” to the next level.
The Babson Entrepreneurship Forum is the largest, student-run, entrepreneurship event at the F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business at Babson College. The Forum’s goal is to raise awareness of key opportunities and challenges facing entrepreneurs in an increasingly complex and global business environment.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
