2021 Virtual Business Hall of Fame

When: Thursday, April 08, 2021
Where: Virtual
Time: 7:00 PM EST
Due to the current health crisis and keeping the health and safety of our staff and constituents as our number one priority, this year, we will be combining our Business Hall of Fame event in Hartford and our Business Hall of Fame event in New Haven to bring you the first-ever Virtual Business Hall of Fame!

JA honors Hall of Fame recipients for their leadership, success in business, and community involvement. Past recipients include entrepreneurs, CEOs, and presidents of both public and private companies, who have achieved extraordinary successes and continue to help shape Connecticut.

At our Virtual Business Hall of Fame, we look forward to honoring SEVEN remarkable leaders in business - three from the Hartford region and three from the New Haven region who have made a significant impact. We look forward to recognizing these individuals and sharing their stories with you.

With celebrity emcee, Bill Griffeth, and special performances by the Yale Whiffenpoofs and Broadway stars!
