Oct 29 RCIE Receives $5M Gift From Atlanta Hawks Principal Owners Tony Ressler and Jami Gertz
Congratulations to the Russell Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (RCIE) on receiving a $5M gift from the Ressler Gertz Family Foundation to help support its development. The Ressler Gertz Family Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Atlanta Hawks’ principal owners Tony Ressler and Jami Gertz.
“If the Russell Center grows into what we believe it will and can be, it should serve as a model for 50 other Russell-type centers around this country in metro areas that need to help entrepreneurs that have not had that access. To me, that’s exactly what we’re supposed to do,” said Ressler. Read more here.
