This session introduces students to Babson’s definition of entrepreneurship and its Entrepreneurial Thought & Action (ET&A®) methodology. Students will work in teams to practice design thinking by generating solutions for a challenge related to a UN Global Goal. At the end of the session, students will present their problems and proposed solutions and receive real-time feedback on their ideas.



Prototyping Challenge
The students will be led through a rapid prototyping exercise where they bring their ideas to life in physical form.
