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.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
