In partnership with The Henry Ford, Saganworks is proud to launch The Henry Ford’s Entrepreneurship Sagan – a virtual and interactive experience for people around the world to explore The Henry Ford’s digital collections related to entrepreneurial stories within the collecting themes of Agriculture and the Environment and Social Transformation. 

The Henry Ford’s Entrepreneurship Sagan highlights some of the work the museum has done through the William Davidson Foundation Initiative for Entrepreneurship, which focuses on providing resources and encouragement for the entrepreneurs of today and tomorrow. Through this grant, The Henry Ford is examining its collections through an entrepreneurial lens, digitizing thousands of artifacts and sharing these stories through blog posts, expert sets and interviews with Entrepreneurs in Residence. With over 170 digitized artifacts within the Sagan, people will have the opportunity to view photographs, documents, and digital content from collections such as the H.J. Heinz Collection, Label Collection, and the Gutman Diner Collection, to name a few. Learn more about The Henry Ford’s Entrepreneurship Sagan through this blog post on The Henry Ford’s website.
