Entrepreneurs are tenacious.
And very often, go-getters. Sometimes they're quiet and thoughtful — sometimes loud, and boisterous.
Sometimes, entrepreneurs fail. Other times, they succeed.
And sometimes, they do so even to their own great surprise.
Whatever the case, Richard Becherer, chair of excellence in business and entrepreneurship at UTC, wants business students to see the whole range of people and personalities who share the entrepreneurial spirit, and especially in Chattanooga and the greater Chattanooga area, which enjoys a proud entrepreneurship heritage.
In fact, exposing business students to success — but more importantly, to the real people behind it — was a driving force behind the creation of the UTC College of Business Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame in 1999.
