“The unexpected impact of being able to connect with and glean from dozens of black, young, and ambitious entrepreneurs, was a catalyst for me to not only launch my business, but to begin transforming the life I assumed to the life I now know I am able to create; the exposure was priceless,”
Stated Amber Heyward. The impact from that pivotal conference inspired Heyward to volunteer to join co-founders Brandon Miller, Darren Sanders, and Henderson Johnson to coordinate the now 3rd Annual BSOE Weekend.
