The annual Entrepreneurial Excellence Awards honor entrepreneurs that exemplify model attributes such as innovative spirit, exceptional performance, personal integrity and commitment to their community. Hosted by Lemonade Day, a non-profit organization that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business, the ceremony recognizes established business leaders along with the next generation of entrepreneurs.
The presenting speakers this year are celebrated business magnate, Jack Welch, the former Chairman and CEO of General Electric Company, and his wife Suzy Welch, a New York Times bestselling author. Jack and Suzy Welch are also the founders of the Jack Welch Management Institute at Strayer University. The featured Award recipient for 2015 is Tony Sanchez, CEO of Sanchez Oil & Gas. Successful youth entrepreneurs from this year’s Lemonade Day competition will also be honored.
The ceremony will take place on May 20 at the Cullen Performance Hall at the University of Houston. Ticket sales are open to the general public, and all proceeds benefit the Lemonade Day program to inspire youth entrepreneurship.
