The Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Conference had Twitter on lock down. From Lisa Nichols‘ presentation on how to pitch your idea to inspiration from the BE Next panel to legal strategies with Sunny Hostin, participants at #BEEC absorbed enough information to go back to their cities and build up their businesses with confidence. Following are some responses from a tweet I (@newsgyrl) sent last week, asking participants to reply with their top takeaways from the conference.
