Guest Column: Cultivating a free enterprise society
Joel Bomgar spoke to the Rotary Club of North Jackson. He drew the biggest crowd I have ever seen at my club.
Joel Bomgar — thin, tall and homeschooled — is a classic entrepreneur. He founded his computer support company 10 years ago, shortly after having graduated from Belhaven College. Since then the growth has been explosive, reaching more than $50 million in annual revenue with 200 employees.
At the podium, Bomgar was the essence of youthful energy and exuberance. He seemed excited about the opportunity to talk about his company.
