CEO Business Visits


Mentor Kalena James

On Mon morning we had our final mentor meet with Kalena James of LCR Coachng. We hope to have mentors matched very soon! Special thanks to our CEO Board Chair Kim LaFollette of Community First Bank for orchestrating this process.

Bridges Outreach

Casey Cline / Travis Taflinger

Just 12 years ago Casey and Travis started a non-profit right out of college which is now one of Kokomo's most beloved and effective organizations.

"Everyone, whether you're into God or not, has a calling to do something passionate in this world." "We were so cluseless when we started that all the people we asked for input and advice became a huge relational network for us and Bridges." "Once you find your mission, pretend it's a hole and only put the things through it that fit."


IUK Economic Outlook Breakfast

IUK Business School
Thanks to an invitation from Dean Krabbenhoft of the IUK School of Business, we got to interact with leaders of business, education and local government while listening to expert economic forcasts of the coming year.

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
