Stanford GSB’s Black Business Student Association is excited to revive our annual conference in 2018 with the theme: A Legacy of Trailblazers: Breaking Barriers and Building Community. We look forward to hosting exciting panels on entrepreneurship, technology and social justice.

The GSB Black Business Conference was started in the 1980’s to bring together the most influential black business leaders with Stanford students and alumni to promote innovation, growth and a forum to circulate progressive ideas. In anticipation of hosting the first conference in over 10 years, we are excited to revive this tradition with engaging keynotes, thought-provoking panels, and a Startup Showcase highlighting promising young companies across multiple sectors.
