Loyola Limited is part of a nationwide movement of student run and managed business enterprises. The SRBC, held on Loyola's campus from February 7th to 9th, was a chance to meet and discuss the successes, as well as struggles of running a business as a student. There's no doubt this conference was a success, and the following schools were the reason why:
University of Dayton, OH
With 9 divisions and over 170 employees, Flyer Enterprises has achieved an unparalleled level of success since opening in 1990. Ranging from coffee to food to storage, they offer students a ton of needed services on campus.
Penn Student Agencies
University of Pennsylvania, PA
Part of the U Penn community since 1933, PSA maintains a strong presence on campus through their various agencies. From bike rentals to bar-tending classes, they continue adding to their portfolio and providing great services to the students at U Penn.
Northwestern Student Holdings
Northwestern University, IL
At Northwestern Student Holdings, it's all about "Unleashing your inner entrepreneur". With 7 unique and varied businesses, this motto is truly taken to heart. Founded in 2007, NSH started with just 2 businesses and now employes over 50 students while exceeding $250,000 in annual revenue.
Brown Student Agencies
Brown University, RI
Founded in 1969, BSA is Brown's premier student run business enterprise. They hold a strong presence on campus and in the community and offer much needed services to both students and the people of Providence.
The following also sent staff to learn more about student run businesses so they could potentially start one at their own university:
Coleman Entrepreneur Institute, DePaul University, IL
Williams College of Business, Xavier University, OH
Thank you to ALL who attended the first annual SRBC and we hope to see everyone back at the second!
