Learning from the Best

Posted on: April 10th, 2013 by admin No Comments

Lots of organizations strive for excellence but few can claim they are the very best at what they do. Babson College is one organization that can confidently make this claim. For the past 16 years straight, US News and World Report has rated them the #1 entrepreneurship program. Like our friends at Babson, we also strive for excellence, so who better to partner with to provide our students with the critical knowledge of how to turn ideas into action?

A team of 15 students from Babson College took over Taibah International School, our partner school in Uganda, for a full week to bring the Babson Entrepreneurial Leadership Academy (BELA) program to 100 lucky students. The group was led by our very own Elizabeth Nakato, who is one of Empower’s U.S. Scholarship students currently in her final year at Babson College.


Amy Malinowski, a team leader and mentor from Babson, created a short video with highlights from throughout the week.  Take a look and watch the exciting program in action. Also, take a moment to vote for the video and help our friends from Babson win a trip to the Global Business School Network Conference in Tunisia: Throughout the week, Dean Dennis Hanno kicked off each morning by introducing new concepts to the students before they broke off into small groups led by mentors from Babson to develop a business idea of their own. As the week progressed, so did the students’ ideas. Strategies took shape. Teams worked together. Confidence grew. And, ultimately, presentations were fine-tuned and prepared to pitch to the broader school community.  The week culminated in a rocket-pitch competition where the best idea from each group was presented and the top three business ideas received awards. We beamed with pride as Empower scholars presented their ideas and demonstrated their potential as entrepreneurs. It was clear that a little of the Babson entrepreneurial spirit rubbed off on the Empower students.
