"Your Future Is Short. Don't Waste It Working for Someone Else," Roger Underwood, entrepreneur and former CEO of Becker Underwood.

Becker Underwood was the world's leading supplier of non-pesticide specialty chemical and biological products for agricultural, turf and horticulture markets, with annual sales of nearly $200 million. Underwood and co-founder and childhood friend Jeff Becker sold the company to the German chemical company BASF in 2012. Roger Underwood has been a longtime supporter of Iowa State University, especially the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. He helped establish and fund the college's Agriculture Entrepreneurship Initiative as well as organize the first College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Career Day on campus.
