Babson Awards $75K to SF Entrepreneurs

3/11/11

Babson College this week announced the results of its first “rocket pitch” competition for students entering the Babson Fast Track MBA program at the college’s SoMa campus in San Francisco. Contestants had three minutes and three slides to explain how they meet Babson’s definition of entrepreneurship as “thinking or acting in a manner that is opportunity obsessed, holistic in approach, and leadership balanced.” The three winners, each of whom will receive a $25,000 merit scholarship, were San Francisco-based Tara Kurland, currently employed by the Air Traffic Control Education Fund; Sammamish, WA-based Rajan Venkitachalam, currently employed by Microsoft; and Oakland, CA-based Delali Attiogbe, currently employed by Genentech.
