Application Deadline: Rattan L. Khosa “Against All Odds” Student Award

This award is open to any Chicago Booth Full-Time, Evening, or Weekend MBA Program student who has overcome significant obstacles to launch or significantly grow a new venture and benefited greatly from Polsky Center programs and the entrepreneurship curriculum to advance the venture. The venture should have an established revenue stream and sustainable business model and be poised for growth post-graduation. While there is no minimum GPA required, the student must have achieved the entrepreneurship concentration and shown leadership at Booth and in the greater business community.

In 2018, Chicago Booth alumnus, Rattan L. Khosa, ’79, established the Rattan L. Khosa Student Entrepreneurs Program structured to directly support Chicago Booth student entrepreneurs.

Rattan has an inspiring story – one that demonstrates hard work and perseverance. Rattan first came to the United States from his native India with just $3.25 in his pocket, and in 1981 started AMSYSCO, a company that provides post-tensioning systems on commercial structures, out of his basement. Overcoming countless hurdles, Khosa has grown AMSYSCO into a highly profitable company that today captures some 70% market share. This annual prize will be awarded to a graduating student who has overcome significant hurdles to launch his or her business. Entrepreneurship faculty and staff will nominate candidates.

 

How to Apply:
Students must complete the online application and include a current resume.
