TechConneXt Backstage: Bevel Prioritizes Tech Skin Care

Bevel

TechConneXt ’16 in Silicon Valley was truly an exciting way to kick-off my official introduction as a new team member of Black Enterprise. During TECHNXT, I was fortunate enough to chat with Tristan Walker (Walker & Co. Brands), Stewart Butterfield (Slack), Michael Seibel (Y Combinator), Michael Green (Intel), Lo Toney (GV), Renee Forney (Department of Energy), Julian Watts (International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals), and Everette Taylor (Skurt).

In the video below, Black Enterprise captured three #digitalGrace moments of Tristan Walker that include Walker & Co. Brands men’s skincare line Bevel, family priorities, and the evolution of tech + skin care.

Check the video and the “Major Key” DJ Khaled shout out.



[UPDATE]

Three weeks ago Tristan Walker shared on Instagram that Walker & Co. Brands received its official U.S. federal trademark registration for BEVEL. This is not a swift process (trust me, I know. Presently, I am registering a few trademarks) to navigate.  

Walker & Co. Brands’ trademark of BEVEL is under Class (008) – Hand tools and implements (hand-operated); cutlery; side arms; razors. This trademark was filed 12/22/2015.

Congrats Tristan & Walker & Co. Brands! In the words of Nas please help us all to continue a “… signature fade with the BEVEL blade … that’s a major key.”

Next up … Stewart Butterfield, CEO of Slack.

10 Riveting Moments from TechConneXt, Part 2

TechConneXt

Black Enterprise’s TechConneXt Tech Summit 2016 is over. Although the event was a success in total, there were a few moments that really captured how unique, fun, and imperative TechConneXt is in bringing together those interested in furthering diversity in STEM.

Some moments were poignant and stirring, others, funny and light-hearted. Here are more of my favorites. See my first 10 highlights here.

Just “Everette” and “Tristan”

There was standing room only in an incredible one-on-one session between millennial tech powerhouses, Everette Taylor, CMO of Skurt and marketing guru, and Tristan Walker, founder, and CEO of Walker & Co. Brands. Both are so well known in Silicon Valley that if you simply mention “Everette” or “Tristan” people know to whom you refer. The audience barely made a sound, captivated, as Everette interviewed Tristan about his life and lessons learned as an entrepreneur.
