Read more about this nominee


Burton D. Morgan (1916-2003) became a serial entrepreneur after receiving his B.S. in mechanical engineering from Purdue University in 1938.

He started more than 50 companies during his lifetime, and while many failed, a number were highly successful. In spite of his success, he regretted that he did not have a formal educational opportunity that would have taught him entrepreneurial skills.

Decades before the current proliferation of entrepreneurship programs, Mr. Morgan wrote and spoke about the need for formal entrepreneurship education. He made the strategic decision to focus the resources of The Burton D. Morgan Foundation on the development of entrepreneurship programs for all ages.
