Jamie Kent 

Jamie Kent is a singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur whose music is a lively, passionate mix of roots rock, contemporary folk, and mature pop. Kent has been called an “artist you need to know” by Rolling Stone magazine and a “must-watch artist” by the Huffington Post. His songs have been heard on major national television programs like “The Today Show,” and his 2016 album, All American Mutt, debuted at No. 16 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. Kent is a native of Northampton, Massachusetts, and graduated from Babson College in 2009. Kent met Professor Mike Caslin as a student in Babson’s inaugural Social Entrepreneurship Course. Kent has created a path for himself by putting together music and entrepreneurship and calling it “entrepreneurship.” In 2019, Kent hosted START up! a new, creative-based pitch competition to learn how entrepreneurship and art can intersect. The program was co-hosted with the Sorenson Center for the Arts and The Arthur M. Blank Center for Entrepreneurship.
