Stars on the Entrepreneur Walk of Fame

The Entrepreneur Walk of Fame was established to recognize the positive impact of entrepreneurs on job creation and technological progress.[1] Seven honorees were unveiled in the inaugural year.[2] These were Bill Gates, Bill Hewlett, Bob Swanson, David Packard, Mitch Kapor, Steve Jobs, and Thomas Edison.[3]

New honorees are unveiled each year in the fall.[4]

The stars are located near the outbound Kendall Square MBTA Red Line stop in Cambridge, Massachusetts.[5]
