What do Golden Corral, Cheryl’s Cookies, Silk Soy Milk, and RainX windshield wiper blades have in common? BGSU alumni were the driving force in their founding.
BGSU has been developing entrepreneurs for years and the Paul J. Hooker Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership is at the forefront of driving entrepreneurship.
The Paul J. Hooker Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership Hall of Fame recognizes BGSU graduates, honorary degree holders and members of the regional community who have achieved distinction for founding, leading or building a new business enterprise for five years or more. These individuals have demonstrated an entrepreneurial spirit that has helped to shape our economies and improved our quality of life. So far, more than 50 world-class entrepreneurs have been inducted into this elite group of innovators.
The Paul J. Hooker Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership Hall of Fame celebrates the success stories of our alumni and friends who inspire future generations of entrepreneurs and innovators, and it is named in honor of Paul J. Hooker ’75 in recognition of his support of the center.
