TechConneXt ’16 in Silicon Valley was truly an exciting way to kick-off my official introduction as a new team member of Black Enterprise. During TECHNXT, I was fortunate enough to chat with Tristan Walker (Walker & Co. Brands), Stewart Butterfield (Slack), Michael Seibel (Y Combinator), Michael Green (Intel), Lo Toney (GV), Renee Forney (Department of Energy), Julian Watts (International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals), and Everette Taylor (Skurt).

In the video below, Black Enterprise captured three #digitalGrace moments of Tristan Walker that include Walker & Co. Brands men’s skincare line Bevel, family priorities, and the evolution of tech + skin care.
Check the video and the “Major Keyâ€ DJ Khaled shout out.
Three weeks ago Tristan Walker shared on InstagramÂ that Walker & Co. Brands received its official U.S. federal trademark registration for BEVEL. This is not a swift process (trust me, I know. Presently, I am registering a few trademarks) to navigate. Â
Walker & Co. Brands‘ trademark of BEVEL is under Class (008) – Hand tools and implements (hand-operated); cutlery; side arms; razors. This trademark was filed 12/22/2015.
Congrats Tristan & Walker & Co. Brands! In the words of Nas please help us all to continue a “… signature fade with the BEVEL blade … that’s a major key.â€
Next up … Stewart Butterfield, CEO of Slack.
