Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame
March 19, 2009

For 24 years, the Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies in the College of Business Administration at the University of Illinois in Chicago has hosted a dinner honoring a new class of inductees in the Chicago Area Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame.  On March 19th, it was a pleasure for Marc Schulman and Eli’s Cheesecake to join this distinguished group.

The Chicago Area Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame recognized the Coleman Foundation for its support of entrepreneurship programs at institutions of higher education around Chicago and the midwest. We are very grateful to Mike Hennessy and the Coleman Foundation for their leadership in extending entrepreneurial programs to the City Colleges of Chicago.

The Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame recognizes the innovators and leaders in the Chicago area. Each year distinguished entrepreneurs who have demonstrated entrepreneurial talent by founding and/or growing a local business are inducted. By highlighting outstanding entrepreneurs, we recognize excellence and encourage business leaders, students and government officials to honor the entrepreneurial spirit.
