We recently spoke with the Director of Babson Food SolRachel Greenberger about the inspiration behind Food Day. She intimated thevision of Babson’s entrepreneurship program, their food-oriented actiontank Food Sol, and the various food conferences that take place on campusthroughout the year. “Babson is globally recognized for pioneering an entrepreneurialmethod. At Babson, it’s really all about thought and action; the focus is more on (nurturingthe entrepreneurial) mindset than the outcome.”
This year’s tagline, a thoughtful pivot from previous years,serves up a “Recipe for Good Food Innovation”. If you have a busy schedule, don’t worry. Patrons can comeand go as they please. Just make sure to arrive to your most desired sessionsearly if you want a seat. Last year over 1500 people turned out for theconference, a large percentage of which hail from outside Babson, and this yearpromises to be an even greater success. Space will be limited.
So if you are looking for an event that will provokecuriosity while at the same time enabling you to connect with other like-mindedrestaurant entrepreneurs, take a peek at the programming. You won’t be disappointed.
Oh. And BlueCart will be there of course. Give us a shout! We’d love to meet you!
