Center for Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership

Center for Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership

The Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership (CWEL) is one of the most visible and important ways we support women entrepreneurs and impact the larger Babson ecosystem. The College was the first business school to establish a center focused on women entrepreneurial leaders and in 2018 received the All-Inclusive Awards by Color Magazine for its Women Innovating Now (WIN) Lab venture accelerator.

CWEL has five programs that impact a diverse set of stakeholders including: undergrad and graduate students, alumnae, women entrepreneurs, and executive women from around the world. Today, CWEL manages the largest undergraduate scholarship program on campus and has launched two successful venture accelerator programs, impacting almost 200 female founders looking to scale their businesses.

A gift to CWEL gives Babson women the opportunity to achieve their full leadership potential by supporting vital programs such as the Women Innovating Now (WIN) Lab accelerator for female founders, the CWEL Scholars program for undergraduates, the Dean’s Series on Gender, and the CWEL Mentor Network.
