Case studies are a little bit mysterious: How do we pick what companies to write about? Our best source of entrepreneurs is our alumni—but even there we stumble across them for many different reasons.
Jon Feinman of Inner City Weightlifting attended Babson specifically to launch his non-profit aimed at helping urban young people find a new path, and was happy to be the subject of a case study just a few years after leaving Babson.
Another great Babson alumni case is on Jim Poss, who, working in partnership with students at the Olin School, invented Big Belly Solar Compactors to create an environmental solution to trash disposal. We met Sy Friedland after Babson alum and longtime senior lecturer in entrepreneurship Professor Les Charm served on a board with him and heard his unusual succession story.
The fact that Sy was willing to have a case written about what was a painful memory for nearly everyone involved—the tactical errors he made in handling his own, ultimately successful transition out of JFCS —was another testament to what an extraordinarily unusual thinker Sy Friedland is.
Rather than shy away from discussing the incident, he put it all out there with absolutely no concern for his own ego; he just hoped others would benefit from his mistakes.
Les knew Adam was the real deal: Along the way, we encounter all the bumps in the road that can effect any growing business. One faculty member approached a friend with a highly innovative and dynamic social venture.

We are hoping to get back to that one in the future.
