Investing in Innovation

Doug BuschDoug Busch spent more than 20 years working at Intel Corporation, the world's largest manufacturer of computer chips and a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. He served as chief information officer for several years, overseeing a budget of more than $1 billion, and as chief technology officer for Intel's health care business.

A life-long passionate advocate for applying technology and systematic improvement to get the most out of every investment, today he invests personally in the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing.

"I started supporting the School of Nursing because I believe in the mission and approach of the school's leadership, and because I feel a strong sense of gratitude to Gordon Moore for the opportunities he and Intel provided me for more than two decades," explained Busch. "The School of Nursing is focused on preparing graduates to be change agents in health care, and is helping talented professionals build the skills needed to solve the problems of our healthcare system."

Doug and Julie Busch established the Busch Family Endowed Fund to help students take advantage of this opportunity, and Doug supports the leadership team as a member of the National Advisory Council.

Busch, along with a few Intel alumni, visited with Gordon Moore, Intel founder, in November at the groundbreaking for Betty Irene Moore Hall, named after Moore's wife. Busch agrees with Gordon's assertion that the School of Nursing exceeds expectations.
