Young Entrepreneur Series – Parker Brothers

November 17, 2011

George Parker was 15 years old when Parker Brothers was invented. George Parker invented his first game, a game called “Banking”. He created that game with a philosophy different than that of his contemporaries. He believed that games should be played for enjoyment and did not need to emphasize morals and values. A year later with the encouragement of his brother he started his own game company.  Soon, two of his brothers joined and Parker Brothers was born.

George created a legacy that every kid in America enjoys today. What will your legacy be? Answer that question and enter it in the Grow Your Own Business Challenge. Visit to submit your idea today!
