BLACK ENTERPRISE and HBCU Buzz are uniting to showcase areas of opportunity and expand media coverage of the HBCU community.

Since 1970, BLACK ENTERPRISE has provided essential business information and advice to professionals, corporate executives, entrepreneurs, and decision makers. Since 2011, HBCU Buzz has provided news, sports, and information pertinent to students, educators, alums, and career professionals who are part of the HBCU community. With issues ranging from politics to fashion, current students attending historically black colleges report news, cover events, and produce articles from their campus’s perspective. With a diverse and widespread team effort, HBCU Buzz is proud to be the voice of HBCUs.

An indelible voice itself, BLACK ENTERPRISE is the premier business, investing, and wealth-building resource for African Americans and, increasingly, Africans of the diaspora. In March, in honor of ‘I Love My HBCU Month,’ these two minority-serving organizations are proud to announce their content collaboration.

“Black Enterprise is elated about its content partnership with HBCU Buzz,” says Derek Dingle, BE’s senior vice president and chief content officer. “Through our BE Smart initiative, we will align with HBCU Buzz to provide information and tools to better serve our shared constituencies and meet our mandate of equipping a generation of critical thinkers and highly-skilled professionals who will fully participate in the 21st century. We look forward to the collaboration and innovation that this partnership will produce, serving as a valuable model for black business and educational institutions.”

BE Smart is Black Enterprise’s education-focused initiative that brings together leaders in business, education, the civic sphere, and more to effect change in the K-12 arena and prepare students fully for their professional and entrepreneurial future.

Luke Lawal, HBCU Buzz CEO, says this partnership will deliver greater exposure to more opportunities, as well as a heightened celebration of the accomplishments of HBCU students and alumni.
