Case Western Weatherhead School of Management
It’s these kinds of innovations and entrepreneurial dreams in Cleveland that originally spawned The Gorilla Group’s creation. Back in 2001, The Gorilla Group was born at the Great Lakes Brewing Company. The group is named in honor of “The Gorilla,” the nickname of the late Professor Richard Osborne of the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University, who requires everyone in his classes to go by a nickname. This inspired creativity, a critical component to the success of any entrepreneur.
