Stanford CNECT Conference, April 13-14, 2018

Stanford’s leading student-run entrepreneurship club. BASES is a member of the Central Network of Entrepreneurial Collegiate Teams (CNECT), a consortium of student entrepreneurship clubs from the nation’s top universities including Harvard, Syracuse, and Columbia. CNECT is an online platform where student entrepreneurs from across the country can share their ideas and opinions on a common forum.

The purpose of this conference is to learn from entrepreneurs from around the world and discuss the global economy. We plan on having presentations, conversations, and workshops highlighting entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley and beyond. We will also leverage our connection to Silicon Valley to bring the best entrepreneurs from the valley to engage with the participants. We have the CEO of Evernote, Chris O’Neil as a keynote speaker and Radhika Shah, co-founder of Stanford Angels and Entrepreneurs as a speaker.  We are currently in talks with a board member of the World Economic Forum, and top executives at Google, Alibaba, and Tencent.

The conference will occur on April 13 and 14, 2018. Since Stanford is absorbing most of the cost of the event, the cost per participant will be $30. We will be unable to pay for students’ travel, but we can either provide free lodging in student dorms or provide block hotel rates.
