Join Bowie State University as we host the inaugural HBCU Entrepreneurship Conference, a forum for like-minded faculty, campus and community entrepreneur champions to share best practices, amplify all the great work, connect with colleagues and strengthen our HBCU entrepreneurial ecosystem. The conference is sponsored by Truist, and features national thought leaders, including Truist, Operation Hope, INROADS, the US Black Chambers, Inc., and more. 

This conference will build on the rich historical legacy HBCUs have played in developing entrepreneurs, business owners and wealth in our communities. More importantly, the conference will lay the groundwork for what is to come and the role HBCUs play in boldly paving the way to prosperity. Thanks to our sponsor, Truist, registration for all attendees is free.
