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.

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.
Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...
Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...
Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
