Join Babson College and Breakaway for the Babson Breakaway Challenge Demo Day: a fast-paced, public event.

All 20 Babson Breakaway Challenge semifinalist teams will convene at Boston’s District Hall on Friday, September 23 to vie for a top spot at the upcoming finale. Demo Day, powered by The Kauffman Foundation, will kick off with a presentation on how to ‘Perfect Your Pitch’ by Vice Provost of Global Entrepreneurial Leadership at Babson College, Candida Brush, and Professor of Management at Bentley University, Linda Edelman.

Semifinalist pitches will then commence in front of a panel of judges, including Breakaway President and Babson alumnus John Burns MBA'05, Co-Founder and Partner of _Underscore.VC C.A. Webb, Executive Director at New England Venture Capital Association Judy Rose, and Partner with Highland Consumer Partners Smaiyra Million.

The day will conclude by announcing the top teams that will go on to compete for the ultimate title at the Babson Breakaway Challenge Finale—a featured HUBweek event on Friday, September 30 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

The Babson Breakaway Challenge is the first and only competition to promote gender parity in the VC industry and award $250,000 to a high-potential, women-led business.
