Paying it forward
Malone and Amy Mitchell aim to help future entrepreneurs
In 2009, when OSU alumni Malone Mitchell III and his wife and business partner, Amy
Mitchell, donated $28.6 million to the Spears School of Business for entrepreneurship
education, their aim was not to create a new school but to provide resources to help
students succeed in starting businesses and avoid some of the mistakes they made.
Thousands of OSU entrepreneurship students have benefitted from the Mitchell’s generosity,
and many more will in the future.
