CEO program pitches to community


Fowler’s business, 410 Design, offers hand-painted glassware and flower pots, cheer bows made of duct tape and other materials, and photo frames. Custom designs are also available and Fowler said she, like Meadows, takes orders. “The name of the business was inspired by my height,” said Fowler. “My business is based on things I love. I love gardening, photos and cheering and this business is a reflection of that.”

Rachel May, Albert Carreon, Cristian Sanchez, and John Buchanan each focused on providing services to the community. May created a plan for Daviess County Tutoring, a tutoring service that could be provided to seventh and eighth grade students who are struggling with school.

“I’ve tutored on my own,” said May, who added that some of the students she has worked with have drastically improved their grades while building their confidence.

Sanchez came up with the idea of Tech-Kare, a business dedicated to fixing phones, tablets and other tech devices. “This is a way to get out of having insurance policies that try to find ways to not pay for your repairs,” said Sanchez. “We’ll be able to fix phone and other tech device screens.”

Blue Ribbon Media was the brainchild of Carreon. “This is a website development company,” said Carreon, who said he became interested in web development when he was 16. “I’ve always been interested in coding and taking an idea in my head and turning it into something.”

Like Carreon, Buchanan already has experience in the service his business would provide. “Convenient Cleaning would provide weekly cleaning services to both homes and business,” said Buchanan who already cleans for a firm in Washington. “What would set this business apart from individuals and others is that we would be insured.”

Inspired by the shirts often given at church camps and other similar events, Thomas Quast created a business plan for J-Shirts. “I’m trying to merge the gap between the camp shirts, which you may be a bit embarrassed to wear and shirts with similar themes. Quast has come up with several shirt designs thus far including ones with themes such as patience among other things.
