A Talk from Entrepreneur and Professional Skier Dan Egan ’87 about Creating a Lifestyle Career

After graduating from Babson, Dan founded Egan Entertainment Network (EEN), leading the action programming industry for 24 years and producing the syndicated television program “Wild World of Winter,” which reached over 75 million households each year.  When extreme skiing emerged as a daredevil sport, Dan was among those leading the way and was named one of the “Top Skiers of All Time” by Powder Magazine.  Warren Miller, an international award-winning sports film producer for over 45 years, first recognized Dan’s abilities and featured him in 12 of his films. In the ensuing years, Dan has become an award-winning producer in his own right, and has been nominated for three Emmy Awards. Currently, Dan is a consultant in marketing and production through his company Degan Media.

Dan’s talk will feature how he made his Babson experience his own, the birth of the extreme sports industry, and lessons learned along the way about entrepreneurship. Following his talk, Dan will be showing “Wild World of Winter”.

In addition, as an alumnus of the Babson Men's Varsity Soccer Team, Dan will be cheering the team on vs. Eastern Connecticut at 2pm followed by a tailgate and talk with the team and their families.
