BUNEEC: The Bryant University NorthEast Entrepreneurship Conference

(Bee – yoo – neek)

Every year we put on our annual entrepreneurship conference, bringing together college students, successful entrepreneurs, and renowned speakers for a day of networking and keynotes. Our conference has taken many forms over the years and has includes breakout sessions, keynotes, and even interactive problem-solving challenges. With a diverse set of intimate breakout sessions, attendees can dive deeper into topics within entrepreneurship that interest them. Anchored by keynote speakers , we hope to leave attendees with a new edge and a bigger network that will allow them to “Be Unique” in the business environment. Students, faculty and community members from across the Northeast and beyond are invited to be a part of this energetic, motivational and inspiring event.

Amazing Speakers

Our goal when searching for speakers to bring to our conference is to find individuals who have had experience in some facet of entrepreneurship who love talking about what they do. Some of our past keynote and breakout speakers include:

Marketing Efforts

We advertise our conference in a big way. Every year, we take over the rotunda in our main academic building and build a massive balloon structure in the center for all to see. We hang signs, put up lights, and even bring in our school mascot, Tupper. In between classes, students who walk through the area stop in and learn about BUNEEC from one of our e-Board members. They can register for the conference on the spot, or take information. In years passed we have spray painted “BUNEEC” on the snow outside and even flown a drone over students walking to class. We pride ourselves on our innovative marketing techniques and enjoy the positive response we get.
