In addition to recognizing six extraordinary business leaders this year, the Texas Business Hall of Fame is awarding forty-four $15,000 prizes to scholars and veterans who have demonstrated an exceptional inclination to build a business in Texas and better their community. Recipients are identified through TBHF's higher-education partners, veteran incubator programs, and innovation centers across the state.

"The selection process, combined with the organization's emphasis on both economic and social impact makes this one of the most prestigious business honors in the state," said TBHF Legend and the 2022 Master of Ceremonies, Richard Fisher (former President, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas).

For guests interested in attending the dinner, tickets can be purchased online from The Texas Business Hall of Fame's website, texasbusiness.org.
