Celebrating the Legacies of Laureates

Junior Achievement and the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce were delighted to host the 25th Anniversary of the Colorado Business Hall of Fame on January 30, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center.

The anniversary of this historic event brought hundreds together to honor those inducted over the past 25 years. To start off the evening, Governor John Hickenlooper spoke of the ingenuity of the laureates. Guests then enjoyed a keynote by the president of the American Enterprise Institute, Arthur Brooks, who talked about the power of free enterprise and the entrepreneurial spirit, reminding everyone of the common thread that links the laureates. The evening ended with a unique memorable production by the Curious Theatre Company that brought the legacies of the Colorado Business Hall of Fame Laureates to life.
