STANFORD BLACK BUSINESS CONFERENCE & GALA

April 3rd & 4th, 2020

 

2 DAYS OF BLACK ACHIEVEMENT AND INNOVATION. 

The Stanford Black Business Conference was started in the spring of 1982 by members of the Class of 1983 to bring together some of the most influential black business leaders with Stanford students and alumni to promote innovation, growth, and circulate progressive ideas. Our mission is to celebrate and highlight the achievements of Black business leaders while also providing a forum to facilitate the exchange of ideas and foster strong relationships within the Black business community.
