Black Entrepreneurs in Training Kickoff Community Gathering

Join us on Friday, October 1st for a community gathering and roundtable discussion led by Cornell alumnus and founder of BET, Jehron Petty (’20).

Due to current COVID safety guidelines at Cornell , food will no longer be served to attendees. This is subject to change in conjunction with evolving COVID guidelines.

As the CEO of ColorStack, a nonprofit focused on helping Black and Latinx computer science students across the country, Petty has cultivated an expansive online community of BIPOC students.

Enjoy an engaging conversation with like-minded students interested in entrepreneurship and discover what the BET community will offer throughout the fall semester, while learning from the BET founder himself.

Spaces are limited. Reserve your spot for this engaging, inspiring event today.

A Call to Action: New Climate Tech Track

Black student entrepreneurs with innovations in ALL FIELDS are encouraged join BET. Yet, as we review the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report and its more precise forecasts for the 21st Century warning of increased severe weather devastation, we strongly encourage diverse leaders to respond to this “call to action” and apply their innovations to help solve our local, national, and global climate challenges. Tied to this, we are excited to announce a climate tech “track” focused on empowering founders in this arena with additional mentorship, coaching, and resources.
