Babson College to Open a New Women Innovating Now Lab in Tulsa, Oklahoma

Babson College’s Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership (CWEL) announced its latest WIN Lab (Women Innovating Now) initiative inside the Greenwood Women’s Business Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The WIN Lab program aims to help women entrepreneurs launch successful businesses and create economic and social impact.

Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, focuses on entrepreneurial education. The college enrolls nearly 2,500 undergraduate students and about 900 graduate students, according to the most recent data available from the U.S. Department of Education. Women make up 45 percent of the undergraduate student body.

Babson’s first WIN Lab was established in 2013 on the campus of nearby Wellesley College. In 2016, the WIN Lab expanded to Miami. Babson’s Tulsa WIN Lab will reside in the Greenwood Women’s Business Center, located in one of the remaining buildings left standing after the Tulsa Massacre 100 years ago. The building is a centerpiece in the initiative to “Help Rebuild Black Wall Street” preserving the legacy of this historic district. The center provides an array of resources designed to support women business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs in achieving success. The new site will offer programming from Babson’s Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership which includes workshops, networking events, accelerators, access to capital, and business development.

“This initiative is a natural fit for Babson. Creating an environment where the talented women of Tulsa can be entrepreneurial leaders is critical to addressing our economic development challenges at the national level,” said Stephen Spinelli Jr., president of Babson College. “Babson WIN Tulsa builds on Babson’s strong track record in helping women leaders achieve success in business, government, and academia. We know that organizations that include women at all levels are more productive and successful.”
