You can also add your own reason for giving in George’s honor by writing your message in the space below so other can read how George inspired you to make this gift.
George Mosher was an entrepreneur who not only started and grew his own business, but took great pleasure in providing others with the resources to do the same. He recognized that a truly successful business can only be led by a person who is inquisitive, thoughtful and sets a personal example of integrity and respectfulness.
George was my mentor, my teacher and the one I credit with getting me involved in early-stage entrepreneur help.
If it weren’t for George I never would have founded BizStarts. He was on our Board of Directors early on and has given great advice over the years.
“George and Julie started National Business Furniture in 1975. George always felt that: ” profit was an attitude”. They were profitable for the next 31 years while doubling sales every 3 to 5 years. After George retired he invested in over 200 early-stage companies in Southeast Wisconsin. He has been both a true friend and mentor to countless entrepreneurs.”
Not only has George been great at growing a business and being a friend to others starting theirs, he is the most gracious person I have ever met. Thanks George for for being a founding member of BrightStar Wisconsin Foundation.
