Larkin spent fourteen weeks on the campus of Tri-C studying a business and management curriculum designed by Babson College, a top-ranked school for entrepreneurial education.

“This was a great opportunity and experience for me as a small business owner looking to expand and grow my company,” says Larkin. “The course is designed to take you away during normal business hours to work on your company and not in your company. It helped me focus on a short and long-term business plan that will be implemented immediately.”

ESC's John Larkin Participates in SBA Emerging Leaders Program

Recently John Larkin, Senior Partner with Electronic Systems Consultants LLC (ESC), graduated from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Emerging Leaders program. The program, which was administered in Columbus, Ohio, ran for a total of seven months. The following press release offers additional information on this most prodigious program. --Al Colombo, ESC Media Director

For Immediate Release:
Nov. 10, 2015
Release #: FY15-14

11 Local Small Business Owners Graduate from SBA Emerging Leaders Program

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Fifteen small business owners across the state of Ohio graduated from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Emerging Leaders program, a “mini-MBA” training initiative for local business on the brink of growth.

This is the first year the SBA Columbus District Office provided the seven-month executive education series. The program includes approximately 100 hours of classroom time, connects small business owners with a network of industry experts and peers, and supports the creation of a three-year strategic growth action plan.

Since the SBA started offering the Emerging Leaders program in various locations across the country, graduates have created more than 2,400 new full-time jobs, accessed more than $73 million in new financing, and secured federal, state, local and tribal contracts worth more than $1 billion. The 2015 graduates from Ohio represented various industries including engineering, billing services, security consulting, food services, graphic design, recruiting and staffing.

“Small business owners often know where they want to take their business, but struggle with how to get there. The Emerging Leaders initiative provides the tools and expert guidance to spark sustainable growth,” said Martin Golden, district director of the SBA’s Columbus District Office.

“There is great value for small business owners to dedicate time to work on their business rather than just in their business,” Golden continued. “Emerging Leaders participants are contributing to local economies by providing new employment opportunities and by bringing growth and innovation to their communities.”

The following are the 2015 SBA Emerging Leaders graduates in Ohio:

Linda Buel, SRMC
Michael Chow, Metro CD Engineering
Anthony Frazier, Urban Chefs
Kristen Harris, Portfolio Creative
David Henry, DEH Electric, LLC
Lori Hubble, Buckeye Skilled Trades
John Larkin, Electronic Systems Consultants
Melissa Skaggs, TBC Services
Barb Shea, 2Shea Creative, LLC
Teresa Sherald, Diversity Search Group
Judy Wells, Designers Midwest

Hack Attack: Learn How Hackers Think, What They Do, What You Should Do

The issue of computer security goes well beyond protecting your Facebook account. There are hackers out there who want your data for a variety of reasons. Many of them will use it to pilfer your checking and savings accounts. Others will sell your data to other unscrupulous parties who, in turn use it for similar purposes.

Recently we've read a variety of news articles, many of them shared here on ESC's website. The Sony hack was probably one of the most memorable of recent years, but there are plenty of others. Now, as you may have already seen, experts are telling us that the Internet connection aboard a jet airliner may be utilized to hack the autopilot in the aircraft. What's next?

One piece of news recently shared by ESC's Director of Social Media and Web Assets over his own social channel involved the placement of a portable WiFi device on sheep and other cattle to provide a mess-type WiFi connectivity for rural locales. It's the issue of widespread access to the Internet that increases the likelihood that hackers will one day attack critical targets, some big and others relatively small.

By contrast, before the Internet became so popular as a means of access to critical infrastructure, governments, corporations, and others used dedicated phone lines, fiber connections, and radio links. If a hacker was not local to the pipe (cable) or radio transmissions, he couldn't access it. The Internet has changed all of that and the outcome is a world of hurt.

The following three videos offer a variety of ideas and educational material on the issue of hacking. ESC would like you to be informed on the risks so you can maintain adequate security on the computer systems you use in your business and personal home. Many times a computer in a business serves double duty, offering a means of programming and monitoring access control and/or video surveillance while being used for daily needs. Although we do not suggest this dual use, we know it is out there. So without further ado, please enjoy the following videos on hacking.
