About Us

who we are

The Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation was created in 1982 by a small group of Texas business men and women to focus awareness on the positive achievements made by outstanding business leaders and to honor their contributions to their community and their state.  Nominations for the Hall of Fame are made by the general public, Hall of Fame members, and Hall of Fame Directors.  Inductees are selected by living Hall of Fame members and are chosen for their distinguished accomplishments in business and their contributions to their community.  There is no giving requirement or admission fee tied to the induction process.

Our mission

The Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation honors the accomplishments and contributions of outstanding business leaders in our State by celebrating their story to perpetuate their entrepreneurial spirit, personal integrity, and community leadership in all generations of Texans.  Our story event is the Texas Business Hall of Fame Induction Dinner.

Who we support

The Texas Business Hall of Fame rewards up and coming business leaders who demonstrate an early inclination toward community involvement through its Future Legends Scholar & Veteran Award Program.  This program is active in 23 universities around the State and is made possible through the contributions of dinner attendees, former award recipients, and Hall of Fame Legends.
