In The Spotlight

Burton D. Morgan Foundation launches research institute, expands staff

In April, Burton D. Morgan Foundation launched the Entrepreneurship Education Experiment, a new research institute serving as a vehicle to share the work happening in the Northeast Ohio entrepreneurial ecosystem nationally and globally. To help handle this growing body of work, the foundation expanded their staff to include Dr. Scott Shane of Case Western Reserve University, the first research fellow in the Burton D. Morgan Fellowship Program; his project involves the study of pitch competitions, launching a series this fall. To assist Dr. Shane, two students from Case Western Reserve University have been brought on as interns. Laura Mummey, a senior majoring in economics and psychology, and Eoghan Bees, a junior majoring in finance, are preparing for PITCH U and four campus pitch competitions.  The foundation continues to grow and evolve, tackling new, intriguing challenges in their community.
