It will be shared with Davis Chamber of Commerce members at their monthly meeting Thursday, May 19, 11:30 a.m. (lunch start noon) at the NorthFront Business Resource Center (NFBRC) on the Davis Applied Technology College campus.
With the program titled “Small Business Success Stories,” Sage Displays will also be highlighted.
“CampusBookRentals.com started their business here in Davis County with little more than a good idea,” says Chamber CEO Jim Smith. “Today they are recognized internally for building a business around a new concept that shifted the publishing industry’s paradigm.”
Such information as how that was done, the challenges faced and where the business is going will be shared.
CampusBookRentals.com has previously been honored for its fast-growing success by Grow Utah Ventures. It had its start at the Davis Business Alliance entrepreneurial center, which serves as a location to help small businesses grow from an “embryo” to self-sustaining, larger status.
The firm provides a book rental service at universities across the country, starting at Weber State University. It is now among the largest of only a handful of such companies in the nation.
Smith believes the message will be useful for “enterprising entrepreneurs” as well as those running a large business who “will find some interesting parallels in what they had to go through to succeed.”
“If you are a banker you will hear how someone that ‘broke all the rules’ made it work,” he added.
Sage Displays is another “success story about how a small company can benefit from the resources available at the NFBRC, including the chamber,” Smith says.
