BETA Provisional Approval

The Business Enterprise Technology Association (BETA) is now a provisional club, eligible for full membership pending our first big kickoff meeting! While we go about organizing the (forthcoming) details of the event, here is a little bit about who we are:

Our Mission
The Business Enterprise Technology Association will bring together students in the interest of technology to provide a forum to promote professional development and leverage member experiences to encourage leadership, innovation and knowledge sharing with the wider Smith community.

We want to be both a gathering point and resource for those interested in technology and its applications to business, both as an end in itself and as a powerful tool that, leveraged effectively, transforms traditional business tasks and changes business models.
