The Arthur Blank Center Fashion Entrepreneurship program focuses on assisting Babson entrepreneurs to build new ventures in Fashion (apparel, footwear, jewelry, home fashion) and provides a forum for entrepreneurial innovators to shape the fashion industry. Each year over 300 students and alumni participate in our events. Alumni in Fashion share experiences and participate in industry challenges that our faculty, students, and research address and explore.
