2018 BESmart Academy

As part of our mission to ensure the educational uplift and professional advancement, BLACK ENTERPRISE has initiated one of our most vital programs in recent years: BE Smart. Over the past few years, BE have been a steadfast ally in our efforts to maximize educational opportunity and effectiveness in underserved and under-resourced communities, in order to realize our nation’s full potential for innovation and advancement. As such, we have successfully enlisted a range of corporate and business partners that share our beliefs and seek to positively impact the lives of students of color.

To achieve this end, BE Smart has developed a series of postsecondary education programs designed to serve as showcases for the intellect and ingenuity of students from historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) as well as connect these budding professionals with corporations that seek diverse talent with the potential to add value to their organizations across the board.

Tech is the future, and it is the objective of BE Smart HBCU Academy: Tech Prep to ensure that the next generation of black professionals and entrepreneurs are equipped to lead and succeed through a day-long program of hands-on, interactive workshops and dynamic speakers as a means of informing and inspiring students.
