What do you get as an etower resident?
At eTower, we are the student entrepreneurship thought-leaders on campus. Every Wednesday, we host accomplished and inspiring guest speakers in our virtual common room to all students on campus. We host regular workshops internally to develop skills needed to be successful leaders and innovators. Our weekly newsletter consistently highlights the accomplishments & role our residents and alumni play in the entrepreneurial ecosystem here at Babson and the broader world. eTower is deeply connected with other organizations on campus, including the Blank Center, Center for Career Development, CODE, Olin Catalyst, Project W, and more.
eTower’s wide-ranging professional development opportunities available to our residents are extremely impactful. We offer the following: Professional Development Funds, Startup Seed Funding, Professional Hot Seat Sessions, Summer Internship Housing Stipends, connections to industry leaders, and more. All these opportunities are meant to support you as a student entrepreneur!
We are not just focused on developing into incredible entrepreneurs, but also enriching and growing ourselves personally. Our Weekly Accountability Meetings allow us to form tight-knit groups and share in-depth insights on what we all are working on and how we can better support each other personally and professionally. While it's important that we offer formal events, we value time spent as a community informally. Nonprofessional bonding is essential to eTower and building relationships that last a lifetime. Some informal activities include Lock-Ins, road trips, game nights, and other fun bonding activities.
