Business Students Learn Strategies to Start Businesses



Apr 15, 2013

On March 21st, students in the business programs at the Columbus Campus enjoyed a guest visit from Will Bowdish, a lender relations specialist at the U.S. Small Business Administration. Business Chair Catherine McKinley invited him to come to speak to students about financing small businesses. He went into specific detail about acquiring loans and how the lenders and borrowers work with each other when a loan is sought.

Mr. Bowdish explained to the students how they need to approach the lender when they are taking the first steps toward financing a business. This includes establishing a business plan and presenting between three to five years’ of business financial statements.

The students found the presentation to be exceptionally informative, and they appreciated the opportunity to hear him speak. Lakisha Carruth, an accounting student, said that Mr. Bowdish’s visit brought realistic insights and a good business sense that made it seem possible for her to start her own business – which is a goal for her as she plans for her new career.
