The Herbert W. Vanden Brul Entrepreneurial Award was created in 1984 through an endowment fund established by Mr. Vanden Brul in conjunction with RIT's Saunders College of Business. The award is presented annually to an individual or business that has improved the economic life of Greater Rochester or whose innovation management skills have changed the course of an existing business.
This year, we will also be honoring RIT students with the Herbert W. Vanden Brul Student Entrepreneurial Award. This award is intended to recognize outstanding RIT undergraduate or graduate student(s) who have demonstrated the potential to become successful entrepreneurs. The award recipients are selected by a committee of area civic and business leaders and RIT faculty. View past Vanden Brul award winners here.
