“I am very grateful to have had Professor Yasu Yamakawa as my teacher and as a mentor. He always says, ‘You failed? Oh, how lucky you are!’ With his help, I learned that the most successful entrepreneurs apply what they learn from their failures to future ventures.” – MICHAEL DABOLL ’19 ON HIS ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROFESSOR, YASUHIRO YAMAKAWA (AKA “DR.

YOUR MOMENT TO LEAR N


THOUGHT LEADERS. INNOVATIVE TEACHERS. ACCESSIBLE MENTORS. Your professors are committed educators, but they also are entrepreneurs, lawyers, artists, and engineers. They’re experts in their fields who often are actively engaged in the industries they teach about, and they use their real-world insights to make classroom learning relevant. Plus, they’re always available outside of class, guiding you through the Babson experience and beyond. They even serve on the boards of student and alumni businesses.

THE CEOS/ Natalia Castellanos ’21 (Guatemala City, Guatemala) and Reed Goldstein ’21 (Minneapolis, Minnesota)

THE INSPIRATION/ Only 23 percent of plastic was recycled in the U.S. in 2016, a stat that made us realize recycling is not practiced as much as it should be and awareness needed to be created.

THE OBSTACLES/ It was a big deal deciding which manufacturer to go with. We reached out to companies around the world and had to consider quality, cost, and shipping concerns. In order to make a final decision, everyone on the team had to be willing to compromise.

THE TAKEAWAYS/ Things will never go as planned, and that’s not a bad thing. Creating a real business is complicated, and it was extremely eye opening to realize how important every team member is to the success of the company.
