The Entrepreneur StoryBooth

This StoryBooth is the latest effort from the new partnership between Babson and BIF to create an Entrepreneur Experience Laboratory that will accelerate the design and development of new entrepreneur support solutions.

Why An Entrepreneur Experience Laboratory?

We believe that the current entrepreneurship support system is well-intended but insufficient to stimulate entrepreneurial activity at the scale and scope we need to revive the global economy.

The system needs more than a tweak -- it needs a transformation.

The Entrepreneur Experience Lab is working to develop a deep and ongoing understanding of the entrepreneurship experience through the lens of the entrepreneur and use that understanding to create a platform to design and test new entrepreneurship solutions and systems.

In its first phase, the Lab team is working with entrepreneurs from all walks of life, at all stages of development and from every region in the United States to create a first person characterization of the national entrepreneurial experience. Building on this new map of the entrepreneur experience, the team is creating a prioritized list of opportunities where the experience can be enhanced to accelerate new venture creation.

In parallel, the Lab team also is establishing a functional lab environment where new ideas can be developed, designed and tested in real world environments. This work will lay the foundation for creating a real world laboratory for systemic experimentation, where programs and services can be developed and tested within an integrated, real world environment.
