Jeremy Barron ’00
Jeremy Barron ’00 is the inaugural director of the Halloran Lab for Entrepreneurship. Jeremy has a deep background in entrepreneurship. He served as entrepreneur-in-residence of the Waterville startup incubator Dirigo Labs, taught an experiential Jan Plan course on entrepreneurship, and co-founded the speech technology and video accessibility company 3Play Media in 2007. He and his team wrote the business plan, secured seed capital, and led the company to become the market leader. They organically grew the business until a partial sale of the company in 2019, resulting in a return for investors of 15 to 30 times their initial investment.
Prior to helping develop and run 3Play Media as its chief customer officer, Barron worked in leadership positions in the nonprofit sector as a program director for several foundation-based outreach programs and as a senior financial analyst for a middle-market investment bank. He majored in anthropology and biology at Colby and holds an M.B.A. from MIT Sloan School of Management.
Under Jeremy’s leadership, the Halloran Lab for Entrepreneurship provides education and training programs, funding for students to start commercial and social enterprises, mentorship, as well as innovation and makerspaces on campus and in downtown Waterville. Jeremy is also focused on developing an entrepreneurship ecosystem involving alumni, faculty, staff, and community members, along with partnerships with companies, organizations, and institutions.
