The program fee for Driving Economic Growth Through Scale Up Ecosystems includes program materials, accommodations and meals at the award- winning Babson Executive Conference Center from 4pm on November 6 until check out on November 9.
Fueled in part by the 2008 economic crisis, in part by geopolitical discontinuities, and in part by surprising examples of economic growth, a global consensus is emerging among world leaders that entrepreneurship is a key strategy—some would say, the key strategy—for economic growth and development. We see high profile programs encouraging entrepreneurship in almost every major city, region and country. However, a painful gap exists between public leaders’ new commitment to entrepreneurship and their regions’ abilities to intentionally create programs and processes that will systematically and measurably stimulate entrepreneurial growth.
Now, Babson College, for two decades the world’s #1 ranked entrepreneurship educator, is offering the world’s first publicly-offered program specifically to help public and private sector leaders create an entirely new internal capacity to formulate and implement entrepreneurship ecosystems in their societies using the most advanced concepts, methods, cases and practice in the field.

Driving Economic Growth Through Scale Up Ecosystems is led by Dr. Daniel Isenberg, a Professor of Entrepreneurship Practice at Babson Executive and Enterprise Education. Since 1981, Professor Isenberg has taught at Harvard, Columbia, INSEAD, and the Technion, and has been an entrepreneur and venture capitalist in Israel, and has been an angel investor in more than 10 countries.
Professor Isenberg is a frequent participant at Davos and the G20 and blogs for HBR, Huffington Post and others. In 2009, he established the Babson Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Project (BEEP) to help societies around the world create the policies, structures, programs, and climate that foster entrepreneurship. In this capacity, he has conducted projects in numerous countries, including Colombia, Brazil, Denmark, Canada, and the United States. Daniel has published several seminal articles in the Harvard Business Review, including “Entrepreneurs and the Cult of Failure,” “How to Start an Entrepreneurial Revolution,” and “The Global Entrepreneur.” He is also the author of the Harvard Business Review Press book, Worthless, Impossible, and Stupid: How Contrarian Entrepreneurs Create and Capture Extraordinary Value.
