Ole Evinrude was born in Norway in 1877 and immigrated to the United states of america when he was five years old. The Evinrude family settled in Wisconsin and began farming, but it was clear from a genuinely young age that Ole would not follow the loved ones tradition. Ole Evinrude was meant to operate with boats.
Building an outboard motor was not easy, though - Ole suffered numerous mechanical and financial setbacks along the way. After years of hard operate and persistence, the Evinrude motor company was founded and Ole's outboard motors had been an instant hit around the globe. Ole continued to enhance the style of his motor and attracted other entrepreneurs towards the area, making Wisconsin the center from the outboard motor industry for decades.
