Countdown until BUNEEC 2019

Our Purpose

Bryant University Northeast Entrepreneurship Conference is a premiere student run entrepreneurship conference where students of all majors, from schools beyond Bryant University, have the opportunity to engage and network both speakers and students from surrounding areas. In previous years, BUNEEC’s target market of conference attendees was aimed towards general members of the Collegiate Entrepreneurship Organization as well as entrepreneurship majors; in the past year however, BUNEEC has evolved into promising an experience for all majors. At the event, the conference encourages students to “be unique” in their careers, with the drive and grit from the entrepreneurial spirit. They are pushed to challenge current ideas, start existing ideas, learn from real world experience, witness individuals who have business experience and insight on implementing innovation into the workplace. Students who are confident with their entrepreneurial spirit have the opportunity to build upon their brand and build connections with students and speakers, while also strategizing to implement new features into their careers. Students of all majors who seek to understand how they can apply entrepreneurial spirit to make their major unique, can take advantage of not only listening to a keynote speaker, such as Steve Forbes or Shark Tank Judges, but can also attend breakout sessions where they can gain one on one experience with business owners or individuals who use the spirit within their careers ranging from finance to biology.

By having a variety of speakers from various backgrounds, BUNEEC reaches a great audience reaching beyond the Bryant University campus. Topics spoken about last year included, but were not limited to: innovation in simple places; transitioning from Vine to YouTube; turning a creative pastime into a business to helping other people; real-estate experience and pitfalls; mental health and women empowerment. Last year, 325 students attended the conference, while 5 schools in addition to Bryant were represented. Students can all agree that BUNEEC gave them critical tools to network outside of their classrooms and encounter “real life” experience. They were encouraged to connect with speakers, virtually, after the event, continuing to develop their professionalism and passions for career development. Connecting with speakers who were well rounded, especially those who may not even have a degree in business yet have the business experience, solely proved that anyone can obtain CEO’s spirit. BUNEEC is the largest student run conference on campus, bringing together clubs, Greek Life, and the cohesions of Business and Arts and Sciences majors, coming together for multiple purposes; in the end, they all leave the conference understanding that entrepreneurship is everywhere.
