Rubicon Founder and CEO Nate Morris to be Inducted into Kentucky Entrepreneur Hall of Fame

The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce announced that Rubicon Founder and CEO Nate Morris will be inducted into the Kentucky Entrepreneur Hall of Fame this November. Morris is the youngest ever to receive the honor. The Kentucky Entrepreneur Hall of Fame shares and celebrates the stories of Kentucky’s most successful entrepreneurs. Founded in 2010 and now run by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the Kentucky Entrepreneur Hall of Fame’s mission is to raise awareness of the impact that entrepreneurship has made in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, while encouraging others to pursue similarly ambitious endeavors. “I share this award with my teachers who encouraged me to push hard for my dreams and never give up,” said Morris. “I received an amazing public education in Kentucky and for that I will always be incredibly grateful. Rubicon is proof that technology can have a positive impact on job creation and opportunity, and that the free market is a tremendous catalyst for environmental innovation.”

With a company-wide mission to end waste, Rubicon is a technology company that provides a suite of SaaS products for waste, recycling, and smart city solutions, and collects and analyzes data for businesses and governments worldwide. Under Morris’s leadership, Rubicon has become a driver for groundbreaking change across the waste and recycling industry, expanding operations to five continents and 18 countries. Rubicon has been recognized as one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies by Fast Company and as an Industry Disruptor by Inc.

Intent on building a different kind of technology company outside of Silicon Valley, Morris founded Rubicon with the mission to end waste while using the free market to bring positive change to the world. An early adopter and supporter of benefit corporations, Rubicon was recognized as a “Best of the World” Certified B Corporation in the reporting categories of the Environment and Governance. A cornerstone of Rubicon’s employment benefits is the 100% payment of employee health care premiums.
