EICAC 2021
The theme for our virtual EICAC 2021 is The New Academic Innovation Hub: Entrepreneurial Practices for Post-Pandemic Prosperity, focusing on emerging trends in entrepreneurial ecosystems and critical roles of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in the economic well-being of the nation, especially in sectors where people of color have historically been underrepresented in leadership and ownership. We are changing the economic trajectory of future generations.
