Babson College will be offering a shared co-working drop in center at 100 High Street in the Financial District of Boston. Kerry Healey, Babson President, comments that nearly half of the 16,000 graduates live or work in greater Boston.
This is the first of its kind where higher education is offering a retail presence rather than just a club experience on an upper floor.
According to the Boston Business Journal, “the Wellesley college known for its success preparing entrepreneurs is leasing 9,000 square feet at 100 High St., including 2,000 square feet of ground floor space fronting on the Federal Street side of the building, in the Financial District. Graduate business students will be able to take classes at the site and alumni will be able to work in a co-working setting…The location, scheduled to open before fall 2016, will more than double Babson’s space in Boston.”
