The New Jersey entrepreneur addressed Berkeley College students, faculty and guests in Woodland Park, NJ, as well as those watching via livestream on each of Berkeley College’s eight campuses in New Jersey and New York, about the importance of adopting an innovator’s mindset in pursuit of entrepreneurial success.
Known to millions of television viewers as the winner of NBC’s The Apprentice Season 4, Dr. Pinkett has established himself as an entrepreneur, speaker, author and scholar, and as a leading voice in business and technology. He is the founder, chairman and CEO of BCT Partners, a multimillion-dollar management consulting, research and evaluation, information technology, and data analytics firm based in Newark, NJ.

Before taking questions from students and signing copies of his book, Campus CEO: The Student Entrepreneur’s Guide to Launching a Multimillion-Dollar Business, Dr. Pinkett spoke about how a key to excelling at innovation is accepting and learning from failure. He shared examples of the hardships black American role models such as media proprietors Oprah Winfrey and Cathy Hughes, as well as David Steward, Chairman, World Wide Technology, Inc., endured and overcame to succeed in the business world.
“Don’t let a setback hold you back because a setback is a setup for success,” Dr. Pinkett said. “Failure is not falling down. Failure is staying down.”
