The purpose of the Center for Entrepreneurship's Nebraska Distinguished
Entrepreneur Award is to recognize entrepreneurs in the state of Nebraska who represent
the ideals of Nebraska small business ownership. These recipients have started or
substantially grown a business in Nebraska and are currently contributing to the
economy of the State and/or their own local communities. They are nominated by past
award winners, members of the Center for Entrepreneurship's Advisory Board
and the Dean of the College of Business Administration here at UNL, and inducted
into the Nebraska Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame. We are proud to honor them as models
of Nebraska entrepreneurial excellence.
At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Business Administration, the Entrepreneurship
Hall of Fame recognizes alumni from the University of Nebraska, as well as other
business members throughout the state for achieving distinction and excellence as
creators and builders of new business enterprises.
