Cardiff founder posthumously receives E&Y Entrepreneurial award

Joseph C. Larson, founder of Cardiff Software, has posthumously received the 1999 Ernst & Young Entrepreneurial Achievement Award. Larson, who was killed in a private plane accident in San Diego this April, was recognized for visionary leadership, business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit.

Larson found Great Plains Computers in 1980, which went public in 1997 as Great Plains Software, and Interactive Technologies, which was a predecessor of Cardiff Software. Cardiff, which Larson co-founded with Dennis Clerke in 1990, president and CEO, is perhaps what Larson is most known for. Cardiff is the maker of the TeleForm family of capture software.

Additionally, Cardiff has set up the Joseph C. Larson Entrepreneurial Scholarship Fund to "award deserving entrepreneurs." Cardiff Software, C/O Joseph C. Larson Enterpreneurial Scholarship Fund, 1782 La Costa Meadows Dr., San Marcos, CA 92069.
