Solving a Problem

Nan Braun

Nan Braun could have just told us that a business should solve a problem. Instead, she led us on an interactive hands-on experience by having us build and adapt models in response to varying data. Thanks for keeping us on our toes, Nan!

She is the CEO of Thavron Solutions, the COO of Cogbots, the company that created the gear art piece at City Hall, and is the co-founder and president of SHAK Makerspace. We look forward to having her back in a few weeks!

Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Statement of Cash Flow

Dr Alan Krabbenhoft, Dean of IUK Business School

As we're focusing on our individual businesses, Dr K helped us understand the concepts behind the three foundational documents every entrepreneur needs to understand. We've heard the phrase, "Cash is king." Dr K helped us understand why that's true.!

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
