CEO Guest Speakers

Starting the Process

We are starting our lanyard project. It's up to us to come up with a design, funding and a finished product we can all be proud of, all in a timely fashion. And it should generate a profit so we have some working capital.

Alumni Checking In

We're thankful to have had so many alumni visit with us already. Pictured here are Hailey Russell (IUK) and Emma Hapner (Ball State). We've also been visited by Brooke Jansen (Purdue), Tory Gingerich (DePauw), Ginger Monroe (Gonzaga), Sarah Pate (Butler) and Connor Sanburn (Ball State). (Apologies if we've missed anyone.)

Monty Henderson


Monty is now the state-wide Dir of Network Operations for the ISBDC, but he still makes time to build into us! "There should be something in you that wants to be in charge to be a successful entrepreneur." "Marketing seperates the great businesses from everyone else."

Monty did a great job equipping us to genrate a class business idea and our own individual business ideas.

Team Building

Travis Taflinger
Since we come from 5 different school systems, team building is a critical part of creating our CEO culture. Big thanks to Travis Taflinger for leading us in the process today. And thanks to Inventrek for hosting us.

Get Involved in CEO

The manner in which the CEO program is funded is critical to its success and sustainability. All funds raised are used exclusively for the Kokomo CEO program. To participate, a 3-year $1000 per year commitment is required. Business Partner Investors commitments of time and energy are also critical to the program's success. Contributions may be tax deductible, as our organization is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class. During that time, the 15 CEO students and their Facilitator would meet at your site where they would also have guest speakers and guests from the community attend. Hosting requires a facility with internet access and adequately accommodates up to 20 people.

We are looking for people to share real-life stories about the concepts of running a business, from strategic thinking, product development to marketing, and cash flow management. Also, sharing your personal successes and failures are what recent classes have enjoyed the most.

If you are interested in participating in any of the above programs, use our contact form to send us a message
