Patricia Greene: Paul T. Babson Chair in Entrepreneurial Studies at Babson College & Academic Director of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses and 10,000 Women

My NativeAdVantage:


Patricia Greene is the Paul T. Babson Chair in Entrepreneurial Studies and she formerly served as Dean of the Undergraduate School and then Provost. Greene’s currently serves Babson as the academic director for Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses and 10,000 Women. She is a founding member of the Diana Project for women’s entrepreneurship and is also a federal appointee to the national advisory board for the SBA’s Small Business Development Centers. Her latest entrepreneurial endeavor is as a co-owner of Artworks, a specialty home goods store in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Her most recent book, written with Heidi Neck and Candida Brush, is Teaching Entrepreneurship: A Practice Based Approach.

What do you do best?

Bring very different kinds of people together to unite behind a mission. And make lemonade. I do tend to look for the positive in almost anything. Perhaps I watched Pollyanna too many times as a child.

What makes you the best?

I respond very well to mentoring and coaching. The times I end up regretting are those when I bury myself alone in a job instead of reaching out. It was very freeing to get to a mental state of not needing to pretend I know everything. I may not always agree with the advice I’m given, but it always makes me think more deeply and get to a decision.

How will you stay the best?

I heard Susan Duffy of Babson’s Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship Leadership speak at the Enterprising Women conference earlier this year and she talked about how to react to mistakes: Feel it, Fix it, Forget it. That is helping me as in the past I have tended to obsess for way too long.

What are your aspirations: business & personal?

Personal: More family time is a given. I’d also love to learn to play blues piano. I was in the Hamburg High School jazz band and was told that my String of Pearls solo was completely technically correct. That still stings and I need to fix it so I can forget it.

Business: I want to change the way the world teaches entrepreneurship. I want entrepreneurship education to recognize the people and businesses that actually are creating most of the jobs, and most importantly helping to create the kinds of lives people want to live. That means exploring new ways of working together inside businesses and between businesses.

What fascinates you?

Space - I actually want to go there.

Favorite Motto?

Slow down, you're going too fast.

Favorite People?

My whole family – nuclear and extended. I never get enough time with all of them.

Favorite Places?

Anyplace with water.

Favorite Products?

If I said anything but Diet Coke everyone who knows me would know that I was not being truthful.

Current Passions?

My family and reading.
