Thanks to a generous gift from Rattan L. Khosa, ’79, a multi-pronged program for students launching businesses with support of the Polsky Center has been established.
Aspiring entrepreneurial students at Chicago Booth will benefit from a $5 million gift from Booth alumnus Rattan Khosa, founder, president, and CEO of AMSYSCO Inc.
Khosa’s $5 million gift will establish the Rattan L. Khosa Student Entrepreneurs Program at the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
The new programs are:
- Rattan L. Khosa First-Place Prize at the Edward L. Kaplan, ’71, New Venture Challenge is awarded to the winning team at the NVC.
- Rattan L. Khosa Entrepreneurial Fellowships are awarded to two graduating entrepreneurs who are dedicated to building their ventures full-time. As part of the Polsky Founders’ Fund Fellowship program, these fellowships provide a one-year stipend awarded quarterly, and also include one-on-one mentoring with Rattan Khosa.
- Rattan L. Khosa Entrepreneurial Interns receive financial support to work for either a startup company or on their own startup. Three interns are named within the Entrepreneurial Internship program.
- Rattan L. Khosa “Against All Odds” Student Award is awarded annually to a graduating student who has overcome significant hurdles to launch his or her business.
