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 www.smckids.com/learnandearn to submit your idea today!
